As I put this post together... I have tears streaming down my face. Looking back 10 years ago through photo's remembering how that felt when our country was attacked. I remember the feeling like yesterday. I remember where I was. I remember the phone call that told me what happened. I remember crying my eyes out sitting at my desk at work because I couldn't get a hold of my Dad who worked in a sky scraper in downtown Columbus. I remember the relief when he finally got ahold of me to tell me he was ok and they were evacuating just incase and he was going home. I remember talking to my mom. I remember watching the news for weeks on end. I remember praying for the people that were in the WTC's. I remember praying for the people searching for missing family members. I remember it all. So much pain. So much sadness. So much anger. So much hurt. So much of every human emotion there is. I know you all know what I'm taking about.
“MY” America was changed forever.
As I combed through pictures tonight I passed so many that had always been iconic to me and I thought to myself... maybe I shouldn't post that, I don't want to offend. But I changed my mind. I don't ever want to censor what happened that day. I want EVERYONE to remember and remember the truth of what it really was. I want everyone to remember what we all witnessed 10 years ago. 9/11 is what it is and I don't think censorship is necessary, or appropriate. If what I post offends you... I am sorry that you feel that way. (just don’t go any farther) But this was my reality 10 years ago and I will never forget these hero's and the fallen. They deserve to be remembered both in life and in death.
God bless them all.
