Twelve years ago today, I was sitting in my truck before work, and heard a news flash about an airplane and a skyscraper.
Twelve years ago today, some 3000+ people died when those planes hit those 3 buildings and one field in Pennsylvania.
Twelve years ago today, only 19 of those 3000+ people awoke, knowing they were already dead men.
Twelve years ago today, I was 6mo pregnant with our first child.
2001 was an eventful year for me--I totaled my truck on Bambi (and dang it, there wasn't enough left of her to salvage ANY venison!), I was in the midst of my first pregnancy (talk about emotional/physical roller coasters), I was working in a job I despised, with people I knew and loved, 9/11 happened (talk about adding new stress!), I left my job to go on baby-leave and never went back (YAY!) and I delivered our first healthy child.
Remember what happened that day--where you were, what you thought or felt or feared or did. Remember those who were lost. This was our generation's Pearl Harbor. Never forget!
