10 Years Ago

10 Years Ago.......
......I had just turned 20 on 9/1/01
......My brother Tim turned 18 on 9/11/01

......I was getting ready for work & was watching Good Morning America. The first tower had already been hit & was burning. As I watched, I saw the 2nd tower get hit & explode. I remember that Peter Jennings was choked by his emotions while broadcasting live through everything. I remember hearing that the Pentagon was hit. I remember hearing about the heroes on Flight 93 taking over the plane & keeping it from attacking the Capitol. I remember thinking that I didn't want to go into work at all that day...I just wanted to stay home & pray for the people & their families. But I did go to work. When I got to work I remember that my co-workers were taking turns going to the gas station. I remember the fear in the eyes of everyone who worked there & everyone who entered the store. I remember our staff taking time to pray for the nation -- over the PA system with the customers who were there. I remembering pausing in a moment of silence. I remember that we had the TV on in the break room in order to stay somewhat updated on what was going on. I remember crying for everyone who was killed that day.

......Daron & I met online a few weeks after that Tuesday morning. We went on our first date on October 27, 2001.

A lot has happened in my life since that Tuesday morning in September. But one things still remains, I will never forget what happened that day, where I was or how I felt. That was a day that had a huge impact on everything that has happened in America in the last decade. You can't go anywhere & not be reminded of that day. I still pray for the families who were directly impacted by what happened. I pray for the families of the many soldiers who have given the ultimate sacrifice while insuring we don't have to face a terrorist attack on our soil again. I thank God everyday for the men & women who are brave enough to fight in our military. We are truly ONE NATION UNDER GOD!!
