I remember that day like it was yesterday. I was at home and my daughter was watching pbs so I had no idea what was going on until the phone started ringing. I want to thank pbs for sparing my daughter the horror of that day. She was so young and did not need to see what was going on. I remember trying in vain to get my father on the phone since he was at the Pentagon that day. Thankfully he was ok. It was such a beautiful day and strange not to hear planes flying over the house. I was thankful when my daughter went to bed that night so I could turn on the tv and see for myself what happened. I sat in shock and cried. My husband rushed home from out of state to be with us and drove us to see my father. The relief was unbelievable when I saw first hand he was fine. Now we live in a small mountain town with no stop light and are homesteading. I feel safer that way. To some that may sound silly but with young daughters I just did not feel safe in a larger city anymore. I say a prayer everyday for the families that lost loved ones and for the ones who lost their lives.
