nine eleven


as i am sure is the case with all of you .. the tragedy of september 11, 2001 is heavy on my heart today. i physically mourn for those lives lost and for their loved ones. this hits home for me so specifically now that i am RT's wife. i just can't even imagine what it must feel like for the wives who had a very regular morning with their husbands and then sent them off to what was supposed to be a very regular day at work only for them to never come home. it makes me want to cry to even think of it. for the wives of the firefighters who were lost. who knew that their husband's job was dangerous but he had been to work and come home safely so many times before that they forgot to be worried. on that day. they lost everything. they lost their partner in life. they lost their other half. they lost their very best friend. how do you even begin to move on with life after such an unexpected tragedy?? i am not sure that i could. today my thoughts and prayers are with them. because no matter how many years it has been they remember and mourn and hopefully heal EVERY SINGLE DAY.
and then i think about the soldiers who are oversees fighting for our freedom right now. away from their wives and husbands. away from their babies. away from their moms and dads and brothers and sisters and friends. what amazing amazing people they are. to bravely volunteer to leave everything and everyone behind. to risk their safety and fight. fight for a better tomorrow. fight for the future of not just this country but this world. the words THANK YOU are not adequate but they are sincere and all i have.

i will never forget.
