Welcome to Mom to Mom's Tuesday Coffee Break!

September 11, 2001 was a day America was changed forever.

Click HERE to go to the 9/11 Memorial website.
Click HERE to ask a fellow CafeMom member anything. She lost her father that day.


Take a moment today to reflect on what happened that day and remember those
who were taken and those who were injured and post a 9/11 graphic here that you like. We'd love for you to share with us!

1. How did 9/11 affect you personally?

2. Have you been to any of the memorial sites or do you hope to one day?

3. What do you think was the greatest impact this tragedy had on America?

4. Should they make 9/11 a national holiday?



While you share your thoughts with us be sure to let us know what you
would like us to serve you!!

And be sure to check out these posts while you wait:


We hope you have fun and enjoy your time with us!!

1. How did 9/11 affect you personally? It didn't have a direct physical affect on me but it helped me realize my love for our country even more. It also brought a deeper appreciation for law enforcement, fire fighters, military etc.

2. Have you been to any of the memorial sites or do you hope to one day? I haven't but I really want to. I would love to see all of them actually.

3. What do you think was the greatest impact this tragedy had on America? I'm not really sure but I think it brought people closer together. At least for a while and definitely once a year. I'd like to think it's more permanent.

 

 

I'll have a strawberry-banana smoothie.

I'm from NY, so I had family that was in the city at the time.  My mom works at a hospital and they went into lockdown and employees weren't allowed to leave for days as per protocol.  Because of 9/11, my husband ended up being deployed twice during the war.

We have been to teh 9/11 Memorial and it's moving and poignant.  When you think about it and what used to be there and picture that day, it's horrific.  It's a beautiful site though.  DH and I work in the shadow of the new towers and it's nice to see things being rebuilt and that life does go on.

I think that 9/11 really took away our sense of security and innocence in so many ways.  We were no longer untouchable and now we live with the thought that terrorists are out to kill us in the back of our minds. 

If they make 9/11 a National Holiday, then I think the same should be given to other days of tragedy like Pearl Harbor.  I would rather move on from this than live in the moment of a great tragedy.
