Ten years ago....

I took this picture of 6-year-old Marlee before I walked her to school that morning.  We were really late, because I couldn't pull myself away from the news on TV.  It was so unreal.  All I did was watch the news, flipping back & forth between stations, for weeks.

I remember how a kind of depression seemed to settle in after the shock had worn off.  But I also remember never feeling such intense patriotism before in my whole life. 

I can't believe it's been ten years.

Sometimes it seems like it was just yesterday.  But then at the same time, it's hard to remember that blissfully naive pre-9/11 world.  So much has changed.

Marlee's changed a little too.  :)

That was EXACTLY what I did too--watched the news channels for weeks! And then that depression too.

My son was 22 months old, now 2 months shy of 12, yet I again have a baby (13 months) and I probably cried just as hard today watching as I did 10 years ago. The children of survivors have been so prominent this year and it's been so very sad to watch.
