We Will Never Forget

September 11, 2001

I'd just dropped our sons off at school.

My cell phone buzzed. My sister Esther, ~ "Have you heard?"

"NO!"

I called Philip!

"Have you heard?"

"NO!"

Immediately we were glued to the news.

Time seemed to stand still. Our hearts were broken.



I will always remember.
I will continue to live this moment with intention.
I will look toward the future.


Do you remember?

Love, Rachel

I remember. Sadly my ears heard what my heart didn't want to.

I won't forget.

Yes. Both my cousins were at The Pentagon and thank God they both turned out to be alright. I didn't hear from my cousin that is like a brother to me for three long days. Unfortunately, things will never be the same...

Rachel, I remember I had the news on very early in the morning. I saw live footage as there was a tiny bit of smoke coming from the first tower hit. They were calming talking and saying that, "apparently a small aircraft accidentally hit the building." I stood there watching in disbelief as the events took place right in front of me on the screen. It was earth shaking. Hugs, Kathi
