I WILL NOT FORGET

     As you all well know, today marks the eighth anniversary of the tragic events of SeptemWorLD TRADE CENTERber 11, 2001. I am listening to some of the 9-11 memorial program on the television and remembering where I was and what I was doing on that day.  We had a tornado rip through on June 13,2001 taking almost everything we owned including our roofing business and horse stable.  We lost horses as well and that was the most difficult for me.

   Our insurance company purchased us a dumpy old house trailer that we named Barney after the purple carpet that ran through the living spaces. It was parked behind what was left of our home. Some young men had already shown up for work and were in there with my husband deciding on the day's plan. I was doing my morning chores and listening to the TV as I went. After the first building was hit I ran to the house with a sinking feeling that there was more to come.  My husband and the guys were already in a circle holding hands and praying for our nation and the lives of those in peril.

     I hope that you will take a some time today to reflect on the things that are most important in your life.  My relationship with God reflects on all the other people and things in my life. I have experienced tragedy and sorrow and pain, but God has never left me and I have never left Him. I have found that, though painful to endure, through trials we have the opportunity to rise even stronger.

    I also will spend some time praying for those who were left behind and those who were injured and continue to endure great pain from this  terrorist attack on the United States of America and her people. May God be with us.

I will not forget either. I remember moment by moment that day. I remember spending time crying, praying and hoping. Glued to the TV....waiting for something to make me feel better. Nothing did.

Kathleen,

It all seems just like yesterday. when I heard that the world trade center was hit by an airplane I thought how could an accident like this happen but when a second one hit I knew it was no accident.

Kathleen, It's got to be the saddest day of the year.  I won't forget and neither will my children or their children.  Freedom comes at a very high price.

I was touring homes with the rest of our office, as we entered one of the homes the owners were just crying their eyes out and pointing to the TV. I will never forget those folks, their home and the horror of us all watching.

Kathleen - The events of that day changed our lives so drastically.  It will be a day I will never forget. We were a military family at the time and the first units that deployed to Afghanistan were from Fort Drum.  It was an extremely difficult time and has really not lessened for so many people that have been affected by this tragedy.  Thank you for calling to mind the events of this day for many who may have climbed into their comfortable lives and have forgotten all that was lost that day.
