  1. Yes, I too remember where I was & how I felt on that day. I am so glad that everything was okay with your dad. We didn't have any loved ones near any of the attacks. But there were so many others that did not have that same news. My heart aches more now for those who suffered that day, through life experiences of my own & growing up. Like you said, I will never forget.
  2. Camille, I also will never forget the following Friday at the Northridge-Layton game--cross-town rivals--and seeing the field circled with football players, school officers, cheerleaders & staff, standing hand-in-hand, alternately from the two different schools--blue uniforms & cardinal red uniforms standing side by side, singing the Star Spangled Banner. It will be forever etched in my memory. Did anyone take a picture? Will we see that unity as a community again?
  3. Thank-you so much for sharing. It is a day that has truly affected people all across the country. But I can't help but be disappointed that she had to ask why you were flying the flag, so she must not see it a lot. So many of our kids-not just yours, many around this country-only see the flag displayed or patriotism displayed only a couple times a year. They don't understand the importance and the history. Obviously four year olds can't possibly understand it all, and I'm not trying to make anyone feel bad. This was a beautiful post, thank-you for sharing, and thank-you for all of the wonderful recipes!
  4. Poor Cyd and your family. i had no idea. I couldn't imagine how terrified you all must have felt, but I can empathize. I was at home and saw the events unfold on the news and I wondered what I was going to have to say to my sixth grade students as they came to class that day. I remember watching on the TV in my classroom and not wanting to turn it off as the morning bell rang. I was thankful no student mentioned what had happened. Later that day or in the week, I am unsure which, I found out that my dear cousin's husband was one of the many who lost their lives at the Pentagon on that tragic day. Every year I hurt for her, but I also celebrate the amazing things that she has pursued since then. There are so many people that she has helped and inspired since losing Brady. I am sure he is proud of his wife and watching over her.
