With my baby on my shoulder breathing softly in my ear as he slept I watched as Fox interrupted the program and began showing a building with smoke pouring out of it. It was the first tower struck by a plane. As Shepherd Smith was speculating about what had happened that a plane could get so off course that it would strike such a building as the World Trade Center.
Moments later, live on tv, I watched as the second plane hit the second tower.
I will remember the events I saw happen that day. I will remember how I felt. I will remember knowing what this meant for my brothers serving in the USAF and the USMC. I will remember God's promise to never leave or forsake.
There was no getting back to normal. Normal was forever changed.
Have we forgotten.
