today and yesterday...

On September 10, 2001 I was at Disneyland with the man I was to marry four years later. Just last night we talked about that last September 10th and how much we appreciate that we spent that last day of innocence at the happiest place on Earth. We had decided to stay over and spend the next morning at Downtown Disney, to soak in more happiness.

On September 11, 2001 we woke up to the news. Case and I packed in shock, ate breakfast at a diner filled with confusion, sadness and fear, drove home to be close to our families and watched as the events unfolded throughout the coming days and weeks.

There will always be a division in our lives...the time before and the time after. It was beautiful to hear the words and and see the images throughout the day today of the loved ones lost and the ones who wake up each day and keep their memories alive. ♥

I don't think there is a single one of us who can't automatically recall the place we were when the news came in. Or the feeling in the pits of our stomachs. Thank you for the post.
