On this particular outing, my Dad gave my brother, sister and I money to put in one of them (he rarely agreed to that). My memory of this~ watching a car get stripped while parked on the street down below. I know there were other views, but the one that sticks in my mind is that poor car!
And it was onto the food line. I can recall the line for food was long and my parents made the statement, "Oh my, the hamburgers are $1.00. I suppose we will see that back home sometime soon too!" And of course a stop at the gift shop where I purchased this pennant that I still have today.
Sept. 11th came many years later~ a day I will never forget. I had the morning news on while the kids were getting ready for school and I saw an airplane crash into one of the towers. I could not think that something bad had just happened. My morning went on........I was in the car and I recall hearing that all air traffic had been suspended in the United States...it was such an eerie feeling as I looked up at the sky. And as the day progressed things continued to get worse...........
On this day I'm thinking of the many that lost family members, loved ones, and people that meant so much to all of us. There were many heroes on this day~ some that live to tell their story and some that don't. A day we will never forget! After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
