Hello, this post will be very short, but I just wanted to state about today is the dreaded and remembered day of Sept. 11, 2001 where the world trade center, the twin towers in New York City were bombed by two hijacked U.S. airplanes and caused a mass murder and destruction that still rings loudly in American hearts 'til this day. (Better explanation of the event HERE.)

And I remember when I was a little girl, I will honestly say, I didn't understand it at all, all I knew is that I was checked out of school and watched the news with my mom. And that since they requested help from all over the country to help look for trapped victims and other various and hard tasks to save lives, my mother with up to New York during the events to help. The duties were extremely life threatening and til this day, I still get torn up thinking just what my mom had to have seen while there, all that destruction and sadness in the air.

P.S. How did 9/11 effect your life if it did at all when you were around during the time?
