Forever in our Hearts

As we all know, today marks the 14th anniversary of that fateful day when our entire country watched as the Twin Towers fell. We will never forget the way it felt, like our entire country was frozen in time.


On September 11, 2001 I woke up like any other day. I was getting ready for work and finishing plans for our upcoming wedding with my mom…then we turned on the TV and time stood still. I so vividly remember feeling like the world was rushing all around but we were frozen in that moment. You know in movies when the character is standing still and the rest of the world is almost like flashes of light rushing all around…thats how I felt. When I got to work we just stood there watching and crying as the towers fell. It was like nothing I had ever seen or felt in my entire young adult life. I remember crying until I literally couldn’t cry any more, praying for the families of the lost or missing, praying for the NYC police and firemen {My brother is LACF}.

Remember this song, {This is particular YouTube video is a compilation of a lot of emotional photos}

It may seem weird but I feel like this and many others songs gave our country some much need morale and hope.

Then on May 2, 2011 our country took a deep breath of relief.

Today join me and take time to reflect on how far country has come since that day and pray for those families who no longer have husbands, wives, daddies, mommies, grandpas, grandmas, sisters, brothers, friends, teachers, or co is going to be roughest on them and they need to know our country loves and supports them 14 years later. Lost but never forgotten, forever in our hearts.
