September 11th, 2001, 8:46 a.m. ... Let's not forget.

Woke up this morning, not really thinking about much other than what I need to pack, and how much I need to get done today. I woke up this morning to my precious little girl, Gracie, laying her head on my stomach, jabbering away, trying to stand up in my bed, and just going about her business of waking up her mommy. I got up... went to the bathroom, then changed Grace's diaper and headed out to the family room as usual. I got Grace a bottle and sat down at my computer to see what was going on today with my friends and family. Of course... in the background, I had Curious George on, and still... it hadn't dawned on me. I opened up my browser... and this is what I saw:

It wasn't until I had turned the channel a few minutes later, did I realize what day it was. I mean... honestly, it was a good 10 minutes after I had changef the channel, did it even dawn on me. I don't really know what I am getting at, but I think that it is important that we remember. I am not trying to be weird or anything, but it just seems strange that, for nearly 45 minutes, browsing the internet, listening to the tv, and just being awake, all that I could find on my homepage was this tiny blip on the screen:

No pictures.... not much other than that tiny link on the main page.

Where were you? I was at work... I had just gone into the bathroom at my work, Trinity, and when I came out, no one was at their desks, and for a split second, I thought that maybe the Lord had returned and I was in Left Behind... now, I am saved and I know it sounded silly, but your mind works that way sometimes. Anyway.... I got to my desk and that is when I saw everyone standing in the break room and that is when I heard the news.

Let's never forget....

2975... this is the number of people that died on this day.... just 7 years ago.
2751 alone... in the World Trade Centers.

It doesn't matter when you are reading this, please take a moment to say a prayer, not only for the families that are still dealing with this painful memory and changed their lives forever, but... for our country. You know... I am not trying to be politcal, or anything like that, but we have a very important election coming up and living in a post 9-11 world, who is going to keep us safe? More importantly... who is going to keep our children safe?

Thanks for indulging me!
