SkyWatch Friday-Remembering 9/11
I drove Christian to school today and this is the scene I saw. The flag at half mast with small flags lining the walkways. The kids were told to wear patriotic clothes. This is the middle school. These children were alive when 9/11 happened, but most not old enough to remember much. Christian had only turned 4 and I was still pregnant with the twins (although at that time we thought it was only 1 baby). I remember watching the Today Show while getting Ashlyn ready for school, 2nd grade. I just turned on the tv when they were talking about the plane that hit the first tower and nobody knew what to make of it when all of a sudden, we all watched in shock as the second plane hit. I took Ashlyn to school that morning then took Christian to McDonalds for breakfast and a bit of normalcy, although you couldn't get away from all the talk of what was unfolding that morning. I remember all this like it was just yesterday. I am happy our schools are reminding the children to also remember this tragic day in America's history.
