Hey Loves! F & J here!
We wanted to take a few minutes to talk about 9/11 and how important it is to remember. It is hard to believe it happened 17 years ago.
It is one of those rare days that you know you were witnessing history. Even though we were both young, still in lower elementary, we remember exactly what was happening and what we saw. Our 9/11 stories are very similar. We were both getting ready for school. F saw it on the news and her mom even said “don’t forget this, this is history”. J was called by her parents into their bedroom to see the news. Her whole family sat on the bed and watched the news replay the plane crash into the towers over and over and over.
It was such a terrible tragedy and we lost a lot of people. It is still heart breaking to think about everything that happened.
It was a day, a time, when we saw so many people and first responders stepping up and showing love and strength in such sad and scary time.
We remember all the loved ones lost. We remember all the ones who helped. We remember. And we will never forget.
If you would like to share your stories from that day feel free to tell us.
F & J
