10 Years Ago:
I walked through the den, half listening to the TV.
Saw the smoke from the 1st tower.
Trying to comprehend.
The 2nd plane hit & both towers came crumbling down.
Feelings of horror, empathy, disbelief.
I immediately knew my baby would be volunteering for combat, for that was his calling. Within minutes he verified just that.
New feelings to add to the mix – fear & pride.
God bless the families of those lost at Ground Zero and beyond.
May we never forget.
