"That day we felt isolated, but not for long and not from each other," My memories are still so clear in my mind. This day gave me so much to be thankful for. As sad and shocked as I felt I was so proud to be an American and see my fellow Americans pull together and help each other.
My mother in-law (my sweet dear best buddy) passed away months before 9/11 and I remember thinking how glad I was that if she had to go it was before she ever knew about this day. She had the worlds biggest heart and I know it would have struck her very inner core. I am thankful she was spared this pain. Carolyn I still miss you daily!!
I have never scrapbooked my feelings on this day. Maybe this is the year for me to finally get to it. This is something our children's children need to also remember. Have you scrapped this for the many futures to come to be able to understand what happened and how you as a family member felt about it?
In all, 2,974 victims were killed by the Sept. 11 attacks: 2,750 at the World Trade Center, 40 in Pennsylvania and 184 at the Pentagon. Those numbers do not include the 19 hijackers. My heart and thoughts go out to all the families that had to suffer from this horrible day.
