It's a terrible, horrific tragedy that none of us Americans will EVER forget. Thanks for sharing this emotionally stirring song with us, Kristin.

Beautiful post! I was a pre-school teacher on 9/11 and the innocence of the 3 year olds during that time was so precious. I could totally relate to you trying to explain it to your children. My class did not even know anything about 9/11 during the time it was all going on. That sounds is wonderful. I just heard it tonight too on my favorite country station!!! Love & blessings from NC!

oh kristin....such beautiful moving thoughts...

it is soo hard to explain some things...

my eldest daughter was 3 when this happened and she asked me to explain to her what happened and where we were together...

it was a pretty emotional to explain it all to her...she's now 12 and it had a big impact on her this year....

the song is absolutely haunting....i've listened to it twice through....


take care...

I will never forget. My husband worked across the street and saw the second plane hit the south tower. My daughter's dorm was three blocks away. She often ate breakfast in the WTC on her way to class. The wounds are still raw, my husband still won't talk about sheperding his people down twenty five flights of stairs out into West Street amidst the falling debris, smoke, fire, airplane parts and falling bodies. But, we do not have to be held hostage to the sentiments that created these tragedies. Ann

Hi Kristin. I wanted to stop in and see how you were doing and catch up on some of your posts. What a touching post this is and so true that the sadness is still so palpable even 9 years later.

Thinking about you and wishing you well...

I di dthe same thing...so hard to explain to your kids. Mine are 13 & 11...so they can understand more than I give them credit for. They asked such hard questions to answer. I just ended up bawling and unable to talk...my husband quickly picked up the pieces...thank you for the song...you are right...haunting...

It's hard to explain when we as adults don't understand it ourselves....Hugs to you, sweetie.
