To quote Alan Jackson, "Where were you when the world stopped turning?" I like how everyone shares where they were and what they were doing on this day in 2001. I was 21, at school, sleeping like much of the west coast was still. I remember my roommate waking me up and thinking that it was an elaborate joke. Then when the reality of the situation set in, I was afraid. I wondered to what extent the terrorist attacks would continue that day. I wondered what would happen to our country.
In honor of those who died, here is a link to the complete list of casualties from 9/11. It includes their names, ages, hometowns, and maybe a little about them. It is about 200 pages long.
I am a rookie police wife. My husband HF graduated the police academy in May 2009. We are the proud parents of three children ages 6-12. We are also a proud police family and feel like this is what we were meant to do. Life is good.
