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.
I am a proud Grammy, a mother, a sister, a wife and a friend. I am slowly drifting towards retirement and enjoy the small, quiet things in life. I read a lot, love antiqueing and thrifting, old black and white movies and studying my family history. I am never bored with my own company. As the old song says, "I Love Paris." It was always my dream to go there and I was able to travel there with my only daughter to celebrate our birthdays a few years ago. I may never get there again, but I will never forget it.
