9/11 is a powerful and emotional day in my house, as it has is in most across the country. Every time my husband heads to work, somewhere in the back of my mind thoughts from that horrible day briefly present themselves. Whenever there is a plane called back to the gate because of a suspicious person or object on board, a chill runs down my spine. When people post pictures or make documentary’s about 9/11 being a hoax, I truly feel it is a grave insult to our country and the people whose lives and jobs are affected daily.
My daughter has no idea that is even possible for a plane to crash and truly I’d like to keep it that way for a little while longer. I just feel this is too heavy a burden for her to bear at age 5, even though the likelihood and odds of this happening are extremely low . Sometime fairly soon though, this reality will have to be shared. The images and stories of horror, heroism, and selflessness are ingrained in our memories forever. Never forget.
