I remember exactly where I was and what I was doing.
I remember that my in-laws were at my house visiting, and it was two days before our second daughter's third birthday. She turns eleven in two days. I remember turning on the television, and sitting horrified, but glued to the screen. I remember wanting to know exactly where all of my family members were at that very moment. I called my husband. I thought about driving to the school to hug my kids. I tried to call my brother, who was visiting a client just over the water in New Jersey. The cell phone towers shut down. The world felt crazy. And the flag became an important symbol of solidarity and peace.
I will never forget September 11th.
