It's 9-11 again. I tried to find a pic to commemorate this date, but I dare say they are just too sad to post. I'm sure each of you remember where you were and what your were doing and who you were with, when this terrible attack happened. I was at my cabin in Northern Michigan. I was with my husband, Garry and a friend/employee, Mike. It was a beautiful up north weekend. We were having coffee and watching The Today Show. And then it happened. I kept thinking "The pilot must have had a heart attack or something." Mike said "No way! That's intentional." I argued that no one in his/her right mind could do that intentionally. Then the second one hit. And at that moment I knew Mike was right. I still can't wrap my mind around it. It's beyond me. It seems that through our lives certain events remain embedded into our memories. The day Kennedy was shot, The Challenger, and for me the day John Lennon was killed.....and this tragedy. My heart still aches for the loved ones, lost. I can not imagine being there. I guess I'm actually glad that I don't understand this whole mind set of anyone who could do this, as I think it would make me insane.
So, to all my online friends ... know today that I am thinking of each of you. I appreciate all of you more than I can say and even if we never meet, I am proud to call you friends. Hug someone you love today. I know I will.
