I was not directly effective by the events on 9/11/2001, but I still take a few moments to remember and pray for those who were. I was putting my 2nd grader on the school. I did not learn of the attacks untill later that morning when my husband and I stopped off at the gas station to fill up. We lived in Edwardsville, KS and were headed to Leavenworth for a doctors appointment. I walked into the gas station to pay and they had their little tv on and everyone was crowded around it. I asked what was going on, and they said the twin towers had been hit and had fallen. There were other attacks as well. I stood in stunned silence as I watched the replay of the plains crashing into the towers, and then them falling.Answer Question

I was at home talking to my friend on the phone, after we hung up she called me back right away and told me to put on the news. It had just happened. My youngest was 5 months old and I just remember holding her and watching the news and feeling so sad for the world she was inheriting.
