Where were you?
We were new to Maryland and I was unpacking boxes with the TV on in the background on September 11th 2001 when the planes hit. I remember talking to my sister on the phone and discussing how my sons and our nephews would probably be called to serve their country and how we wondered if we'd ever feel safe again. Then it got personal when the Pentagon was struck because Tom was going to be there for training. He never made it to DC but it took two hours for me to get in touch with him.
I remember how I felt.
My sons or my nephews were never asked to protect their country but THREE of our nephews chose to join and our daughter joined the Army Reserves were she met her husband to be who has served two tours in Iraq missing the birth of their son. I remember and I thank these soldiers every day that I DO feel safe.
Have you forgotten?
