My heart is evident in my writing. I have to feel it to write it. I am most passionate about my children and grandchildren.
Always the "good" student in school, I had dreams of being a reporter. That failed when I decided to marry before graduating. Such is life. Now I place myself here to learn from the best!

It?s been 20 years since America stood still in shock
Eyes glued to TVs or gazing in horror from the streets of New York, offices in the Pentagon or in a lonely field in Pennsylvania
As the lives of 2997 men, women and children lost their lives to terror.

I don?t count the 19 lives of the terrorist who decided to end their lives ONLY the innocent who were going about their daily lives oblivious to their fate

8:46 am American Airlines flight 11
Struck the North Tower
9:03 am United flight 175
Struck the South Tower
9:37am American Airlines flight 77
Struck the Pentagon
Amid the screams and disbelief, 413 First Responders rushed in to save lives

9:59 am The South Tower collapses
10:03 am United flight 93 crashes in the
In the field in Pennsylvania
10:28am The North Tower collapses

One hundred and two minutes that changed America.

Can you still feel the anguish, disbelief and anger of that day?

Can you still feel the American Pride at seeing Old Glory flying amid the rubble?

    Mary Kay Bonfante : What a beautiful post, JUSTAFAN. Yes, I remember that day. We can never forget it.
    You know, that flag the three firefighters put up that day went missing, for many years... my husband and I were just watching a documentary (recorded on DVR, 9/11/21) about how that flag turned up, years later, and was proven to be the original flag, forensics and all. It wasn't a big flag, it was 3' x 5', but it was Old Glory, the Red, White and Blue. We remember the 2,997 who died, including the 343 First Responders (I think there were actually more) and then the thousands who died in the decades that followed, after breathing in the toxins at Ground Zero. We remember them all.

justafan: Happy Birthday America

justafan: You give birth
And the moment your eyes see
Your creation, your life is forever

Gone forever is the party girl
Gone forever is the sleeping in
Gone forever is privacy

All replaced with a tiny person
Placed in your arms...your heart
Who will call you Mommy

You are now responsible for bath time,
Play time, feeding time and best of all
Snuggle time

Their accomplishments and failures yours to rejoice over or cry with
Their heartbreak... yours as well

As they leave you to start their own family... you will feel both pride in a job well done and if you?re honest with yourself... an emptiness

In the end ...
God will look down and whisper to your heart... ?WELL DONE MY CHILD?

Happy Mother?s Day

    TAB_that's me: I just read this quote - I couldn't get it to copy/paste but this is what it says:

    Life is about balance. Be kind but don't let people abuse you. Trust, but don't be deceived. Be content, but never stop improving yourself.
