Remembering 9/11

I don't think I'll ever forget how terrified we all felt on the morning of September 11, 2001.  I wondered if things would ever be the same.  Would my children grow up in peace?  Would our government collapse?  Would my sister, who lives in a group home, be safe?  I wondered about my brother who lived just outside of New York City and my other family members who live near Washington, D.C.

Looking back over the last ten years, I feel blessed that we are as safe as we are today.  I'm very grateful for our military personnel and their families.  They sacrifice so much for my safety.  Because of them and many others, my family lives in peace and security.
