FOR YOU AMERICA!
I was fairly new at being a single Mom. I'd spent a year working whatever jobs I could, and a year waiting to get into school to upgrade my trade. And just a few days late of the start of the school year, I finally got the call saying I was approved. I should report to school around 11 AM Atlantic time on September 11, 2001.
So, I got the kids up and off to school. And I took a little extra time getting myself ready. As I was having that final cup of coffee, I flipped on the TV to check the news. And what news!! I saw the live coverage of the second plane. I was dum-founded! I called my American friend in the next town and told her to turn on the TV.
I was late for my first day of school, but how could I leave. I sat and cried with you America!
I'm thinking of you today.
