September 11th is a hard day for many and today marking the 10 year anniversary of the Terrorist Attack on the World Trade Centre buildings brings up a lot of emotions.
Most people you talk to will be able to tell you exactly what they were doing at the moment they found out.
I was sleeping and I got a phone call from my friend, and when I answered she said “The World is going to End”… of course I assumed she was joking and she told me to turn on the tv.
Words could never express how I felt that day. I wasn’t able to take my eyes of the TV, and I don’t think I stopped crying the entire day. I wavered back and fourth through anger, sadness, desperation, fear and just plain raw.
10 years later and those feelings are come up again. A friend posted this on facebook and I appreciated the stories and the emotions that they portrayed. Grab a tissue and watch. You can go to the website here, or watch below. (there are more videos on the website)…
And as if that wasn’t enough of a tear jerker - here is a video of the most beautiful love story (from the same website)… don’t say I didn’t warn you – it’s a serious “hand full of tissues” cry.
Some good news today – recently there was a kidnapping in British Columbia – last night the kidnapper returned the child home. He still has not been found, but what a huge blessing it is that the sweet boy was returned home.
Hug everyone you can today.
