What vivid memories I still have of this day. I keep myself far removed from wars and how other countries treat their people because I don't know how to help. But when they bring their evil to my country and my people, it hurts.
Mr. Ralph was trying to make some stock trades and was cursing the computer when they wouldn't go through. I was watching the Good Morning America show. I just started crying. Hard to explain to our teenaged daughter.
It is hard to believe it has already been 13 years. In some ways it seems like last year. In others, it seems ancient. Several friends had happy memories of that date ... until this tragedy occurred. Birthdays and wedding anniversaries. First dates and engagements. All now seem overshadowed.
I am so proud to be an American.
