I will be gone and not blogging tomorrow..but I wanted to begin by saying that I REMEMBER. We all do.
It was by best friend's birthday. She and her husband were still sleeping in the guest room. She and her husband and myself and my husband have been for the past 50 some odd years. My husband was no longer with us as he was the first of the four of us to die.
She turned 65 that day. A phone call came in from another dear friend of mine and when I answered the phone..she just said...turn on your television. She was almost screaming. I did...and the nightmare began to unfold. The first plane had just hit. I asked her if it was some sort of horror movie..she said..."NO, it's real! It's happening right now!" I yelled for my friends and they came running in and piled on the bed beside me.....and we watched...horrified. Then we saw it coming through the air, the second plane. I remember I screamed..and it hit!! All of us were crying! I will be horrified to the end of my days when I think of September 11, 2001.
My poor friend, every birthday for the rest of her life will be a bit marred by History. It will always sadden us, but it is nothing compared to the lives it changed forever....with the world watching!
