Honor and Respect
Tomorrow marks the 15th anniversary of 9/11. I remember exactly where I was that morning.
As I was getting my children ready to leave for school, my father in law phoned us from NY. We turned on the television just as the first tower collapsed in a plume of smoke, flames, and horror. I will never forget that day or the hero’s who stepped up and made us all proud to be Americans.
Pamela and I will be postponing Style Sweet Spot this Sunday in honor of those who sacrificed so much and those who lost their lives.
Hold your loved ones closely. We are all blessed.
Thank you and this is so thoughtful, Jen. Scott and I woke up from celebrating our first wedding anniversary the night before to this news. I awoke with a start with an urge to turn on the TV – so unbelievable. From a happy high to heartsick in a minute.
We are all honoring those that lost so much on that day.
Let’s talk soon, dear friend.
Thank you for your thoughtfulness.
I remember being at home with my sleeping preschooler. My husband called from work.
Then began the worries about my cousin, who normally would have had appointments in the towers that day. After a day of relatives attempting phone calls, we were relieved to learn he hadn’t gone to work that day. He had taken time off to be with his newborn child and family.
There were so many stories of terrible tragedy, but also many stories of amazing grace.
We didn’t turn on the TV during our child’s waking hours for weeks after that. How can anyone explain this to a child?
God bless all people and i feel such a lot of respect for all american people! You are so strong and live in a wonderful country! Thinking of you and give all my regards to you.
