September 11th...where were you?

Practically every blog I've read tonight, the news, talk-shows had to do with Sept. 11th...and rightfully was and still is a significant part of our nations history. It's kind of like the JFK assination of our where were you?

Me...I was watching the Today show for some reason...not usually a Today show watcher...was just flipping through channels that morning and then it happened...My son Austin was 4...Bren was 2. Colton wasn't even part of the picture until the following year. I remember being glued to the TV...just couldn't get away from it...I was in shock. Watched the Discovery Channel special the other night about the Twin Towers and those emotions and shock rose up all over can people hate so much??? One thing I noticed on many of the blogs I read...many of you were, many of us have little 4-5 year olds running around. I remember when I was pregnant with Colton it just seemed like everyone was pregnant...maybe it was God's way to bless the world with these little souls to (and I hate to say replace...cause nothing can replace those that were lost) but give us that where left behind the Bible says in Jeremiah 29:11, "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

The earriest thing though after the 9/11 attacks to me was the day after...not a plane in the sky...I usually see the lines across the sky left by the planes flying overhead...that day...not a was very strange and made it seem all that more real to me when I couldn't see a plane in the sky.

My heart goes out to those who had loved ones who perished...those who tried to save others and paid the ultimate sacrifice...those who didn't in any way deserve to die. Those who were brave and fought back to save the lives of other innocent people...God bless these people with an extra special blessing. May we NEVER EVER FORGET!!! May we never forget those who lost their lives, may we never become complacent. May we not be so comfortable that we think that something like this couldn't happen again...may we always be in prayer for our country and the innocent lives that live here...God Bless America!

Amen! and the no planes in the sky hit me as very strange too. We were living in Jax.FL which is a huge NAval base...we saw one lone jet patrolling the city. eerie!
