I am not a New Yorker, and have never been to New York. However, I am an American. That day I was glued to my TV, and really, I was glued to my TV for the next week. I couldn’t stop watching. It felt like a nightmare, not reality. I still have such strong emotions about that day. I am so sorry for all those lives we lost. Not just the American lives, but all the lives. I am so thankful for all those men and women that risked their lives to save others! I am so thankful for all the men and women who continue to risk their lives for my freedoms!
One thing this day also brings up for me is not just terrorism and sadness. I also had such strong emotions about how wonderful people are. There were so many heroic things happening during that day and as a result of that day. I always want to think more about how good people really are. We have to think about how we are being a part of that goodness. We have to have hope.
