.remembering. This weekend is the tenth anniversary since the 9/11 attacks. It crazy to think that 10 years has gone by. I remember exactly where I was when I heard what happened. When I see footage of it on t.v. I still get the same eerie feeling come over me as I first did on that Tuesday morning. I was a senior in high school then and it was hard for me to grasp exactly what was happening. How does a teenager make sense of terrorist attacks, how does anybody?
In the days after the attack I remember our community pulling together to pray for those in New York and around the United States. I remember our nation pulling together for each other. The candle light vigil at the Madison, WI capital, church services, and a cross made out of mini- American flags in our yard are still are fresh pictures from the week that followed.
I know that everyone over the age of 7 probably remembers where they were on that day. I bet it is the same for those who lived through Pearl Harbor. I don't think we will ever forget. Today I am remembering 9/11. I am saying prayers for those who are still healing from this attack. Praying for the children of those lost. Praying for parents who lost children. Wives who lost husbands. People who lost friends. And praying that our Nation will remember and not be divided but continue to rally together as the United States of America. .remembering.
