What were you doing?

I will never forget this day 9/11. I was nursing Bryce who was only 3 weeks old, and my sister calls to tell Mark and I that the Israeli's were bombing us. Not quite knowing what to do with that statement, we turned the TV on to see the most horrific historical events ever. Bryce's birth reminds me of this day. His small innocence, and how we as Americans at that point in time were completely innocent (or naive) to the cruelness of this world. Just as he has learned the harsh reality of life, we too have learned that we are not invincible and bad things happen. May this day give you hope for tomorrow, and a new outlook on how precious life is. God bless America!!

Hey Mia! This is proof you have moved and are settling in! :-) Yea! I do hope all is well. I've missed "seeing" you around. :-)

Oh, as for what I was doing...I suppose I should actually reply to the real post :-0...I remember being at home with Jozsef who was 7 mos old at the time and getting a call from my mom telling me to turn the TV on. I was stunned by the news. I remember my first thought..."Well, it's not the end, I didn't miss the rapture--my baby is still here..wow! What's going on?". Great frame of mind, eh? :-) 9/11 Certainly has changed our lives....

Hi Mia,

I was pregnant with Landon and I wondered what in the world I was doing bringing another life into this mess of a world. I still remember how I felt and the utter shock. Each September 11th is a solemn reminder to be thankful.
