Websites were slow in loading. I couldn't get through to the news sites and it became clear to me something more was happening.
When I finally got the news loaded up, I couldn't believe what I was seeing. Two planes had flown into the Twin Towers in New York.
Later that evening, I watched the news reports. I remember watching an interview with a husband, whose wife had left a message on their answering machine. She was trapped in one of the towers. She was saying how much she loved him and good bye. My heart ached.
I think about those families, those who lost loved ones and those who survived and can't imagine their thoughts and emotions.
I pray every night with my son for a world filled with peace, love and understanding. May we see it in our days.
