Like most of you I spent this morning watching the tribute to the victims of the September 11th attack on our country. We were all changed by that day whether we knew a victim or a New Yorker. We have two friends who worked for Merrill Lynch at the office building across the street from the twin towers and often had meetings in the World Trade Center. As we watched the buildings fall we wondered if we would ever see them again.
For the longest time, my youngest daughter couldn't bear for me to leave her alone unless she was at
school . When she interned in New York as a freshman in college we saw the site for the first time. It was overwhelming. Today there is a beautiful memorial with all those names so we will never forget how many people were lost.
Vickies's Mostly Needlepoint blog today has an entry about a "survivor" that I never even considered. It will take your breath away.
A day like today puts your life in perspective.
