This year I had the opportunity to do something I have wanted to do for nearly 10 years.
When I visited NYC, the place I was most interested in seeing was the 9-11 memorial.
I have spent the past 11 years seeing images of that day and ending up in tears every single time.
That day changed my life in many indirect ways. While I didn’t know anyone personally who perished that day, I have known soldiers since who have given the ultimate sacrifice, and felt that sacrifice every day my husband deploys. While he is no longer military, we did have 2 military deployments together and many many civilian deployments since, and I have seen many a friend through a deployment.
For me, seeing the 9-11 memorial was an extremely emotional experience, but at the same time it brought me peace as I am sure it does many others.
I will never forget September 11th, 2001. I will continue to honor the many men and women that gave their lives that day, and the many soldiers that have since sacrificed for our country.
