Nine years ago today, my world was rocked! I was pregnant with my first child and teaching first grade at Winnfield Primary School. I can remember the knock on my door and the hall conference that quickly took place as I was informed that one of the towers of the World Trade Center had been hit by an airplane. I remember the chills that ran across my body and the prayer that I prayed. At this point, we weren't sure what was happening but minutes later when the second tower was hit we knew we had been attacked. I remember the sick feeling that I felt and the tears that fell as I called my husband who was at home watching it all on television. I remember saying that I didn't want to raise a child in the world that we were living in because I was scared. Despite my fears, I remember that God is in CONTROL! I remember The Pentagon and the heroes on Flight 93. I remember going through the motions to finish that day at school and get home to the ones I love. I remember the way our church family bonded together to pray at Atlanta Baptist Church. I remember watching the news and reading the stories of men and women, boys and girls that had been affected by this awful event. I remember feeling like I knew them personally and my heart breaking. I remember our soldiers being called to war and going to protect our freedom. I remember almost seven years later my brother was one of those soldiers! I will always remember, I will never forget!
God Bless America....land that I love.
