Love, Love, Love

LOVE...
I always struggle to put my feelings about September 11th, 2001 into words. Fortunately, there are those who can and do so eloquently. One such person is my friend, Donna Hosie, at Musings of A Penniless Writer. You rock, my friend.

LOVE...
Another is author Meg Cabot's personal account of what she experienced living in NYC that day.

Some of you know that I've been a U2 fan for over 20 years. When I heard that they would be perfoming at the 2002 Super Bowl halftime show I was pumped beyond belief. But what I wasn't prepared for was U2's powerful, moving tribute to those who lost their lives that day. There are moments when tears and smiles co-exist and can express what's in our hearts better than words. This was one such moment for me.



I will never forget.

  6. It was an incredibly sad day - it's hard to believe that there are kids now in elementary school who weren't even born then.

  8. @Bethany - Indeed it was...the worst. My 7 year old daughter wasn't born and really knows nothing (yet) about that tragic day. I chose not to show her anything on TV about it. Some day.

    @Lydia - Your post was so moving. Thank you for sharing your story. *hug*
