My treasured pennant of the World Trade Center. Little did I know that when I purchased this more than 30 years ago, it would have such meaning that it does today. Being from Iowa...New York City was a sight for this Iowa farm family. I recall my parents discussing the fact that hamburgers were $1.00- yes $1.00 in the World Trade Center. And, I remember them saying, "Oh, we will have $1.00 hamburgers in Iowa before we know it!" Wow~What a different time!
The heroes, families that lost loved ones, and the freedoms that we all lost on that day....How can we forget? Our country is strong and this day pulled our country together in a way that I don't think any of us would have ever imagined. We, as Americans, have adjusted the way we live~ but, in the grand scheme of things....We are safe and proud to say that we live in the United States of America!
Sept. 11, 2001~ Now Sept. 11, 2011~ 10 Years later and more proud than ever to say that I live in the United States of America and am a citizen of this great country! After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
