18 years ago 9-11

I wrote a post yesterday about death and how I always wonder what will be my cause of death.Cause Of Death

I can’t prevent the tears from streaming down my face as we take this day to remember 9/11 and praise all of our heroes. My heart is so heavy right now.

I can’t help but wonder how they all felt while this tragedy was taking place. I’ve read so many articles in the last 18 years concerning the families that were left to deal with the death of a loved one. I’ve seen so many pictures as well.

When I saw this particular victim, I pictured her morning like this:

When she arose that morning kissing her kids goodbye and making sure she had everything she needed before she ran out the door. I don’t know maybe she had a disagreement with someone in her house or on the way to work that morning and never thought about the possibility that she may not have a chance to clear the air.

Her last words were just that.

No one gave her the heads up that when she arrived at work, she would die there. Her kids and husband would have to learn how to function without her. She had no idea that she would be one of the 3000 plus innocent victims that would be forced to leave this world.

 At 9:03 a.m., United Airlines Flight 175, also bound for Los Angeles from Boston, crashed into the south face of the World Trade Center’s South Tower. At 9:37 a.m., American Airlines Flight 77, scheduled to fly from Washington to Los Angeles, hit the Pentagon.

At 10:03, Flight 93, flying from Newark, N.J.,  to San Francisco, slammed into a field in Pennsylvania after some of the passengers fought hijackers who had been trying to hit a target in Washington, D.C.The World Trade Center’s South Tower collapsed at 9:59 a.m.; the North Tower fell 29 minutes later.

I don’t know what tomorrow brings or even the next few minutes, so I choose today to love like no other. I hope you all do as well. ~USA TODAY~

You could have chosen any blog to read, but you chose mine, and I’m honored.
