9/11 – We remember
As we watched the 9/11 remembrances this morning, my parents and I talked about where we were when we saw/heard the reports. I remember my phone at work ringing, my son and husband were both National Guard, and were checking in to let me know they hadn’t heard anything yet – about mobilization. And we waited, and waited. Neither of them was mobilized at that time, but we saw more and more young people signing up for the Guard after that day. There were suddenly no planes flying over our house, the skies were quiet, except for the Air Guard.
To those of you who watched your sons and daughters sign up after that day – Thank You.
