9/11 Tribute




It was so hard in deciding what to post for today. There are photos and poems everywhere, but I really loved this commercial so I finally chose this.

We are remember that day so well. I was living in my tiny apartment at the time. I had a meeting at school and it was interrupted by the secretary coming in to announce the news. We turned on the TV, and of course that was the end of that day.

I had taken my oldest son, Adam, to the airport in Indianapolis the night before. He had an early morning flight through Philadelphia and then to Tampa, Florida. I was in a state of shock waiting for news of his plane. 

At the end of the day when the skies had become silenced, I remember just sitting in my apartment...really just sitting. I wanted to get to my children. They were all over the country by then and I couldn't get to them. 

The following weekend was the Johnny Appleseed Festival. A meeting was held a few days later determining whether or not to go ahead with the festival. It was determined that families needed this time together and what better way to celebrate life than to go to the park.

It was the right thing to do.

I guess the most important thing to do on this day is to remember...just remember.
