In remembrance..

             Last night I watched this movie and shed so many tears. Although the stories told are fictional they felt so real because this happened to so many people maybe not in the exact way as depicted in this movie but in some cases I'm sure it came pretty close. I was just 8 years old when this tragic event happened. I didn't understand it at the time and really didn't know how big of a deal it was. I believe most of that was because I was sheltered from the whole truth about what really happened.

               As the years went on I got older but this day never seemed to pass without a thought twice about what's going to happen this time. I remember fearing that a plane would crash into my house or when I heard one up above I always watched it in fear of the unknown. I never really told anyone my thoughts about this day, and honestly I didn't really know how I felt about it besides being sad and curious all at the same time. I always wondered what it was like for all those people in those final and sudden thoughts while this was all going on. Just now even reflecting it makes me a bit sad.

           So when the 10th anniversary came around is when I really learned the most about that day. Because it was the mile stone of "Ten Years" the media made it a big deal of course.. I think I watched all that there was to watch on 9/11 that day. It was heart breaking, yet all that I learned was so eye opening because there was soooo much I didn't know up until then, which even shocked me just thinking back on all the years when I was old enough to learn about it I didn't..  So after watching show after show for the few days following I felt like I had seen and learned all there was to know about how it happened and even why.

       There is so much we still don't know and probably never will but what I do know is that lives were shattered and broken in a matter of minutes that day. This movie above that I watched last night was sad and yet had a sense of breaking free to it. So I definitely recommend watching it and just taking a minute to reflect on life.. because it's short and is to be cherished

We will never forget. 
Love Unites Us All.
