This day...

On September 11, 2001, when the World Trade Center was hit by those planes, I had no idea what impact it would have on my future.  I remember how sad and shocked I was but as a twelve year old, the severity and meaning of that day was not something I understood.  Now nine years later, I sit here writing this post as an Army Wife.  That day has turned into a long war against terrorism.  My husband has served in Iraq in an effort to fight this war.  I now at least partially understand the sacrifice.  I thank those who have fought to protect our freedom and I pray for the families who have lost a loved one either on that memorable day or in the nine years since.  Their ultimate sacrifice will never be forgotten.
