September 11th

Today it has been 7 years. I cannot believe it. I remember the day it happened. I was a counselor's aide for 1st period in high school. There was always a tv in the side room in the counselor's office. The tv was on at the time. I am pretty sure it was around 8:30 a.m or 9. Then we overheard them talking on the news about what happened. We were all sooo shocked and sad. During the rest of the school day, we watched our tv's in our classrooms.

A few years ago, Lisa Beamer wrote this book, Let's Roll! It is so good. I remember when I read it, I couldn't put the book down. It told the true story about her husband, Todd Beamer. He was a hero on one of the planes. He was also a great Christian. So if ya'll haven't read this book, go read it.

Again, I still can't believe it. Even now I am speechless. God Bless America!

I bet that was an amazing book. I always thought she showed so much grace and courage in the days after 9/11.
