Today I took the kids to school and noticed the flag at half-staff. For a second I wondered why, then I remembered the date. Has it really been 7 years since America was attacked? It doesn't seem possible. I remember that day, I remember getting a phone call and being told to turn on the TV. And I remember being in total disbelief and then just hugging my baby, since Buzz was not even 1 yet. We cuddled all day and just wondered what was next. It was later the next year that his dad decided to sign up for the National Guard. I couldn't have been more proud of him. I just want to say THANK YOU. To all of our soldiers, police, firemen, marines, seabees and every other public officer. Thank you for working so hard to keep me, my family and all of America safe. I support you fully and will continue praying for your safety. Also to all the families that lost loved ones that day, and have lost loved ones since in our efforts to keep such a tragedy from happening again...You are always in my thoughts and prayers.
Today I get the hard task of explaining what happened 7 years ago to my son, who is old enough to know now I believe, then he can remember with me.
