Today I am so Thankful for all the individuals who assisted us on September 11th while most of us just sat at home in shock. I know I was wondering how anyone could help or even know where to begin, and at the time I had a 6 week old baby and I was not sure why I would have brought someone into this world when we are never certain what life will have in store for them. I remember connecting with Erik on the phone and he sensed the uncertainty in my voice and said, I will be home soon. Everyone left work that day and for the ENTIRE day we were glued to the TV and waiting to hear if we knew anyone in the towers.
Later I believe that we all knew someone who was in the tower or a friend or family member who has lost someone on that Evil day. I do not even begin to understand what that must feel like but I would just like to say to all of my friends and family who have lost someone, it was for something. Their life STILL has plenty of meaning and that will never go away. Please know that our family observes this day with much sorrow and much gratitude all at the same time.
I also want to extend a huge ** Thank you** to all of our Firefighters, Police Officers, and general citizens who assisted us on that day. We truly appreciate it!
