A Day of Reflection

It is hard to believe it has been seven years since that tragic attack on our soil. I remember my mom calling me, crying and I thought something had happened to my Grandmother who was suppose to be traveling that day. I quickly sighed a little relief and turned on the TV, realizing that many were receiving a call. Then the second plane hit and the second tower began to burn. I remember the feeling of mourning everywhere for days, sitting glued in front of the tv for three days straight. Life stood still. Then the flags flew, the nation bonded and people seemed to think of others.

It is hard to believe it was only seven years ago. I was talking with my BEE today and she had no idea about the Twin Towers. Why should she, she is only five? But then I thought, in only a few years has this event been moved from the front page, to a page in our History books.

Where am I going from here? I am not sure. Other than the fact that I really love this picture and what it stands for me. A reminder that we do live in a land of Freedom, but that life is precious. May we all remember to live, laugh and LOVE.
