I had wanted to do this on Thursday but I was not near a computer. I had to get on and give my tribute to the people that perished on this tragic day. I remember that after the first plane hit I had just gotten home from a young adult committee meeting and my sister and i turned the news on in time to watch the second plane crash. Just shortly after I went to work at the daycare I was at in Friendswood TX. I was 19 years old. We had the radio on quietly to keep up with what was happening. The kids that day who were all around three years old wanted to be policemen and firemen and be heroes like what they saw on TV that morning. It was very heartwarming but sad at the same time. I loved the patriotism that was everywhere around this time. It was amazing to see how everyone pulled together and were kind. I think too often that people forgot this spirit all too quickly and I am glad that we as country at least remember it and honor it each year with Patriot day! My thoughts and prayers will always be with the family members that were affected on this tragic day in history.
