I am sure we are all remembering where we were at this time eight years ago -- actually about two hours ago.
I forget a lot of things, but there are two things I will always remember-- Where I was as I watched Katie and Matt announce on TV the crashes into the towers and then watching them fall and where I was when I heard JFK had been assasinated. I had been getting ready to leave the house for work on 9/11/01 and watching a few last minutes of the Today Show when the announcement came on. On 11/22/63 I was in Philadelphia walking to the train station from a class and it was my 18th birthday.
We all live in gratefulness that we have been kept safe on our own soil since September 11, 2001. We all live in hope that our safety will continue and we bless those who continue to defend us and those who have perished.
