9/11/01….I was

pregnant with twins

taking my 4 year old to preschool

met a longtime friend for lunch

witnessed two amazing American towers fall to the earth into a pile of rubble.

called family


held my family and prayed

was proud to be an American


9/11/12….I am

watching those twins grow-up, 10 years old

seeing my 15 year old take the bus to school

will call that now-lifelong friend on our lunch anniversary date

will remember those towers I had been in personally

will call my family

may shed a tear

will continue to hold my family and remember

am still proud to be an American



It is just not another day….one we will Remember and Never Forget.
