I remember

I don't think I'll ever forget where I was 7 years ago today. I was getting ready for work...running late as usual. I'm early every where I go, but my job at Wells Fargo Financial gave me a lot of flexibility, and I was doing good if I showed up before 9. I was pregnant with Madi. I remember thinking, "I'm bringing a child into this world...now?"

When the towers were hit and fell, I don't think I really understood the implications of what it meant. It wasn't until later when more reports came in that it all started making sense to me as to what really happened and what it meant for our country.

My mom was at the high school and I remember her calling. Our sense of security had been threatened even from an event that happened thousands of miles away. You just kind of wanted to gather your little chicks and bring them in close by. My sister and Colt were in Denver at the time.

So much has changed in 7 years...but I don't think anyone will ever forget that day.

It is still a little painful to remember. And those of us that saw it, won't ever forget. I pray that I can pass the importance of not taking our safety and security for granted down to my children.

I find it ironic the detail you remember of the day. I just wanted to go home and hug my wife and kids, just to make sure they were ok.
