September 11th

We wanted to take a moment today and remember all of those who were affected during the attack of the World Trade Towers back in 2001.

It seems like just yesterday our world was shaken. Today our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the lost and those whose lives will never be the same.

Although today marks the 11th anniversary of this tragedy, we always remember what we were doing and where we were when the first plane hit the world trade center.

Katey was in western civilization class when the instructor advised us to turn on the television. The class was then dismissed immediately following and all classes were cancelled for the remainder of the day. What she didn't know was the impact it would have on so many lives around the world. It leaves us all with sober thoughts as we think of the sacrifices made by so many on that day. We will never forget.

Sarah remembers driving home from Astronomy class when she couldn't find one song playing on the radio. When she arrived home she remembers seeing her mom's shocked face after she had just watched the planes crash. She has friends that were in NYC at the time whose lives were forever changed that day and her heart is with them. She also has quite a few military friends that have given up years of their lives to serve overseas to help keep America secure. Her prayers are with them.

What do you remember from September 11,2001?

God Bless America.

XO Sarah & Katey


  1. I remember half of my middle school was picked up by their parents so they could rush home and say goodbye to their fathers who were leaving within the hour. Every single submarine was sent out that day and no one had any idea of when they would see their families again.

    1. Isn't it crazy how much we remember?! One day we will have to tell our kids the significance of this day! Thanks for sharing your story!
