Remember 9/11

It doesn't seem possible that it has been eight years since that fateful day. I was home sick and I remember Ken calling asking if I had the news on. I turned on the news to see maddnes and mayhem going on. Needless to say as most were that day and the days to follow I was glued to the television. Where were you on the fateful day??? Please take a moment to remember our service people and their families. Whatever we face daily is NOTHING compared to what these people face daily. Our service people are working very hard to keep us and our country safe. Our city police departments work hard daily to to keep our cities and streets safe from harm. Thank an officer next time you see one. They'll appreciate it. Our Fire Departments help to keep our homes, schools, and businesses safe. Our ambulance companies are there to help when there is an accident or medical emergency. Pass on your thanks to them also. These people and the ones profiled above work long hours, are away from their families a lot and talk about dealing with stress--we don't know the half of it! Say a prayer for all these people and their families before you head off to sleep. I'm sure they'd apperciate it GREATLY!!! ~Keep on Dreaming~

  1. I was at the public library doing story time for a very large group of children and their mothers who did not want to be home alone.

    Anyone who volunteers to be in harms way to help others is a hero. :-)

  2. I was in my Special Ed. classroom with several students when a colleague came in and announced what was taking place.

    It was a tragic day that will remain with us always. I pray for the loved ones who lost friends and families that horrific day in history.

    You and Mr. Ken have a peaceful weekend!!!

  3. I, too, was in a special ed classroom (kids were not there) and thought it was a mistake. I called my parents and was on the phone with them when the second plane hit.

  5. I was at home watching the morning news and saw it from the first plane and watched television all day long; crying and trying to figure out how to tell my boys who were 7 and 8 what happened without scaring them. My husband was there with me; he was off work that day, and I was so glad he was home.
