I Remember

My son had an assignment due today asking 2 questions:

1) Where were you when you first heard about the attacks on 9-11-01?

2) What do you remember about 9-11-01?

It stunned me at first to hear my son say he doesn't really remember that day.  Don't get me wrong, he knows what happened, he just doesn't remember living through it.  Of course, he was just starting Kindergarten when our nation was attacked.  It's no surprise that he barely has any memory of that day.  I held him close, but I also tried to protect him from the fear I felt 12 years ago today.

His assignment was to also ask someone in their 20's and someone else in their 30's what they remember.   Personally I don't think I will ever forget where I was, how I heard, the sight of the second plane flying into the twin towers, the tears & fears of those in the midst of the rubble nor the heroes at ground zero.   Today my card is a remembrance card for all those who were affected on 9-11

 
It's important to never forget and also to continue to live.

What a lovely remembrance card.
That square lattice folder is a great one - I do not have it but have a few pieces of embossed cs that were sent to me. I cannot quite see - did you stamp, then emboss?

Beautiful card and great post. It's hard to believe it's been so long. Thank you for reminding me to pause and remember.

Yes, Dorothy, I stamped first and then embossed. I love embossing folders.

Beautiful remembrance card!! My son (now 15) doesn't remember much either-just that I kept turning off the TV when he came into the room.
