I've written a post before about what I was doing on 9-11-2001.  What I know 13 years later is that once you have had one of the worst things that could ever happen to you actually happen to you, you look at life differently.

That is where I am in my life at this point.  I react so differently than I would have before losing R.  I feel like I am much calmer in my approach to life.

So as I face tomorrow know that my daughter now lives in NYC-  I will think of her often tomorrow, but I am not going to worry too much about her-  for I know that like has a way of just happening and I am not going to waste on precious minute worrying about what might or could happen.  I am going to live my life in the moment.  I had a great conversation on the phone with her tonight.

I had the opportunity to visit the 9-11 museum this summer.  I really wish that every American could have the opportunity to visit.  It is an overwhelming experience.  If makes you realize how enormous of the event actually was.

Let's all remember 9-11 and honor the memory of those who died by being kind to others and trying to make a difference in our corner of the world.

What is left of one of the firetrucks.
 Iconic picture with the actual flag encased.  Very moving.

Store display just as it was left after the attacks.  Very eerie.
