It is amazing to me that no matter what, this day will always take me back a bit. I did not know anyone that fell victim to this day, but my thoughts and prayers are always with those who have. I can’t believe it has been 7 years already. It is really something when the daughter you took to preschool that sad day wakes up and says, “Aren’t you going to wear red, white and blue today?”, I asked a simple question of “Why?”, expecting a simple response and instead I hear, “Because 7 years ago two planes flew into the Twin Towers”. Now I am not sure what all she does know, but I know that she knows it was a tragic day in American and she wanted to wear red, white and blue as a way to show her “love” to those people who lost their families and friends.
WOW, that is powerful…coming from the mouth of a 10 year old girl in America.
