Yesterday was the 16th anniversary of 9/11, and I failed to realize it until I read about it in Mage’s blog post. She posted this video called “Boat Lift“. I watched it and once again felt the mixture of sorrow and pride as the event unfolded. I remember turning on the t.v. that morning–something I rarely do in the mornings–and saw the video of that first plane crashing into the World Trade Center.

I felt ashamed that I failed to remember such a traumatic and life-changing event. That day spelled the end of our complacency, and brought lasting changes to our lives. In order to protect us as a nation, we’ve had to give up some of our individual freedoms. We can still travel freely throughout the country, but if we’re flying, we face increased scrutiny and delays. We lost lives and so much more that day.

We are forever changed because of the events that took place that day.

Be safe, be well, and please be happy. Know that you are loved, and remember to tell those YOU love that you love them.

About tehachap

The easiest way to define myself is as a very happily married woman with two sons and two grandsons. My hobbies include reading, writing, sewing, trains (watching, photographing and running them in G scale), and travel. My husband and I are retired and we spend our winters in Arizona. I used to own a secretarial and desktop publishing business, but closed it when my husband retired in 1999. We have truly enjoyed our retirement years, and have fulfilled one of our primary goals in life and that is to own a home overlooking train tracks so we can watch trains 24/7. We are sincerely blessed in this life.
