I Remember – Wordless Wednesday

Back on September 11, 2001 my husband and I were on our way to work, we heard on the radio that a plane had hit the World Trade Center. When we go to work and turned on the TV, it was just in time to see the second plane hit. All I wanted to do is close my Dad’s restaurant and go back to the daycare to pick up my four and five year old boys. Go home and hold them tight.

I remember and I will NEVER forget.

This weekend, my daughter had her first football game to cheer at. They held a memorial for 9/11 and I wanted to share some photos with you. The ones of the firefighters staring up at the half-staffed flag…. some with closed eyes turned my eyes to tears. It was an amazing site for me. So I decided to share these photos instead of my daughters first game.

    Seeing firefighters even now still brings me back to that day. I’m forever grateful for their service.

    Beautiful shots Chele. Even though that day is etched in stone in our hearts It’s heart warming to see the firemen doing a memorial to 9-11. One day a year where everyone comes together as a community.

    Hope your daughter had fun cheering.

    We’ll always remember exactly what we were doing that day and it will leave a scar forever. I’m happy your daughter was still able to cheer at her game and I hope she won! Beautiful pictures!
