Ten years ago today my heart…
…stopped because while I had one child safe at home, one was at school and might not have been.
…shattered for the loss of humanity when buildings toppled and planes fell from the sky, while I could only watch sobbing in horror.
…hardened for obvious reasons.
…soared as stories of our nation’s heroes unfurled in NYC, DC and a plane crash site in PA.
…grieved for the victims and their families.
…swelled with pride as we showed an entire damn planet that the spirit of the United States of America will NOT be defeated by cowards and bullies.
…beat stronger with the determination to prove that We the People are By God We the People.
Every year, it all still comes around full circle.
