I think all of us can remember back to where we were on September 11th of 2001. Josh was on his way to work and the children and I were getting things together for our school day. At the time, Samuel was just a baby and as it would be, we had no TV. There was a time in our life when we were modern Luddites and shunned many of the technical devices that make life a little more fun. I know it seemed odd since my husband is on technology's cutting edge in order to earn a living but we've never been ones to live by the norm so we had the radio on listening to the reports regarding the attacks. Once we realized the extent of the attacks, Josh turned around and picked us up so we could go to where there was a television and visually see what was happening.
That day changed our country forever. No longer did we just 'hop a plane' somewhere. No longer were we innocent. As parents, we knew that day that we were going to be handing our children a much difference world than was handed to us. There was much controversy over what we should do, what has been done and how to handle it in the future. I wish there was a right answer and that it would be that simple but as we have seen over the last ten years, right can be a matter of opinion sometimes. What we do know is there has not been an attack since so there is victory in that alone.
May God Bless and Keep You in His Grace,
