Do you remember where you were seven years ago today? It was one of those memory imbedded moments in life, like remembering where you were when JFK was assassinated, or the Pearl Harbor attacks....(if you are old enough to remember that!)
I remember getting the phone call from TL saying, "turn on the TV!"
I didn't want to, I was busy, I never watch TV in the morning, but I did.
I remember the feeling of shock and horror, watching the towers fall.
I remember keeping that TV on for days and days, anxiously watching every news update.
I remember listening to the words of a strong and decisive President of the United States.
I remember eagerly awaiting the words of comfort and counsel from a Prophet of God.
I remember the eery silence of the skies over my head.
I remember worrying about family and friends who were stranded in far away places, trying to get home.
Today I am:
Remembering those who lost their lives that day and saying a prayer for their families.
Remembering those who have left family and home to help preserve our freedoms and security (thanks Zak!)
Remembering those who fought and paid the ultimate price to keep that freedom.
