A Day to Remember

It was 8 years ago today that I was sitting in bed with a newborn (Taylor) and I decided to turn on the t.v. The first plane had hit one of the towers. We were all wondering if it was just a horrible accident. Then the second plane hit the second tower and suddenly we knew. Our world as we knew it had forever been changed.

As hard as I try to explain it all to my kids each year, they'll never fully understand. It was tragic, horrific, uncomprehensible and completely life-changing.

Sandy City does this healing field each year. It is so amazing to see all the flags and realize each flag represents a person who died.

I wish I could write like my cousin Jordana. I have so many thoughts floating around in my head but I'm not very good at transfering them onto paper. Here is a video I love that is pretty amazing and awe-inspiring...

A lovely tribute on this anniversary.

I remember you calling me and asking if I had the TV on. I said no, and you said, "You really should turn on the TV." It was so surreal.
