How?? Who??? Why???? Tears!!!!!!I don't remember it a clearly as most; odd as I was not a child. Shock I guess. I stared at the T.V. watching it all day as I'm on the pacific coast. I didn't sleep for the next 48 hrs because each time I tried i woke screaming. Our country wasn't safe. We weren't safe. Children lost their parent's, husbands and wives lost one another, parents lost children, and brave men and women who risked their lives to save them were now lost as well... NO NOT LOST lost is the gentle word we use when consoling the grieving.... yes I grieve but I've found my anger! These people (family members were STOLEN violently ripped from their families hearts and in turn from the heart of the United States of America.) To those who did loose loved ones...we do not remember you once a year, we hold you in our hearts each day. 9/11/2001 is a day that marks time now in the United States and with it we remember those taken from us. For even if we didn't know them personally they were part of us: We unite at sporting events when we all stand and sing the national anthem, in school classrooms when we stand together and say the pledge of allegiance, when we unite when we remember those taken that day.
