I overhead my brother-in-law speaking to my niece about September 11 and what happened on that day back in 2001 and I thought to myself, oh my, there are people who don't know about that tragic event. Of course she didn't, she was way too young. It's crazy that something so powerful could be something that future generations are going to read about and learn just like we all do on other historical events.
I do remember the amazing feeling of patriotism all over. The need to think of your fellow man versus ourselves. Lots of flags being shown, flown and visible everywhere. It was pretty cool! Everyone was proud to be an American.
Things have changed a lot - some good, some bad, but change for sure. Hugs and prayers for those who lost someone and mourn on this Day of Rememberance.
