A Day We Can Never Forget

So I really want this blog to be a place to escape...a haven if you will. I don't want to talk about all the bad stuff going on in the world. I want to focus on the beautiful, fun things in life. But there is no way to post on September 11th and not remember...

This morning as I drove to work, the DJ on my favorite Christian station was talking about 9/11. I thought to myself that it really didn't effect me anymore. That was something I never thought would happen. Could I be over it? Then he played the "Silent Night" song with "God's" voice describing how he was with each person that day. I lost it. I spent my 7th consecutive September 11th crying in my car...

Work commitments today brought me to the exact building I was in 7 years ago the moment I heard the news of the first plane hitting the WTC. I haven't been inside that building in almost 7 years. How weird is that?

Life changed for all of us that day. My eyes were opened to an evil hatred that I couldn't fathom. I will never understand...and I never want to. I will just hug my babies tighter and pray for the world they will grow up in. I'm on my knees for them and for you tonight...I love you all!
