Where were you??

I don't know when this day, if ever, will not bring tears to my eyes and pain in my heart. I didn't loose anyone I knew on this day seven years ago, but they thought of all the people who did is heart breaking. I was in the Army and stationed in Alaska on this day September 11, 2001. I was just waking up getting ready to go to PT when my phone rang, which was kinda normal because my mom was 2 hours ahead of me and would call to say good morning. Well this was not the same Happy mommy on the other end of the line. She was frantic and scared and asking me what was going to happen to me. I was so confused because I had no idea any of this was going on. She told me to turn on the TV and see what was going on. I actually turned on the tv about the time the second plane hit the towers. As I sat in shock and still not really grasping what was going on my mom was saying, "are you leaving, are they going to send you somewhere?" I told her not to worry, but I needed to go to get to work. I changed out of my pts and put on my uniform, got in my car, turned the radio on, and drove 3 hours (usually 5 minutes) to work.

All the families that lost someone and all the troops are especially in my heart and my prayers today!
