10 Years Later...
It’s been 10 years since September 11, 2001!! I can’t believe how the time went by. It’s amazing because the more I think about it, the more I realize some things are the same & some things are very different.
Right after September 11th, the whole environment was different. There was amicability between people, “God Bless America” signs & sayings everywhere, & more. Now it seems as if many of this has passed & faded within that first year. However, the memories of that day will always live on. Many of us were affected in many ways, from the loss of loved ones to the day being imbedded in our brains forever.
If my future children ask me about that day, I would be able to say what I was doing & where I was when the news came through. For many, this day will be similar to the assignations of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Pres. John F. Kennedy.
I pray for everyone who was affected by this day; I pray for those who live on with the memories, reminders, & loss. I pray for continued peace & for those of us who seek it. I pray for those who continue to fight the war that I may never be able to explain.
No matter how many years go by, we will always remember.
Until next time.
