Is it just me, or is it hard to believe that the attacks on our nation occurred 11 years ago? At that point, it was hard to believe that our lives would ever be considered "normal" again. I remember talking about how sad it was going to be that our kids (and grandkids) would never know the freedoms that we had enjoyed prior to that day. I knew it would just be a matter of time before we settled into a "new sense of normalcy", but that was a pretty scary time. It made you realize just how vulnerable we really are, and that there's only so much we can do to protect our kids.
How could such a beautiful day turn into something so ugly and horrific? No matter how much time passes, may we never forget.
