What Do You Remember From The Past 10 Years~

Although it has been ten years 
some memories are still very clear.

The Pilot Man brought me coffee and woke me up with these words,
"An airplane has just hit one of the Twin Towers."

As we watched the TV we saw the second tower hit.
Unbelievable.
Incredible.
Terrible.

As the day went on, we heard more reports.
I was working on the outside siding of our house.
The air was quiet....all airspace had been closed so their were no planes.
I went to the store and bought milk.  
Just one gallon because we didn't know how long before 
more groceries could get in.
The butcher was concerned about his son who was in the military.
People scrambled to find the status of their loved ones.
Everyone tried to find something they could do to help.

The next day a patient had to be medivaced to Anchorage 
so Bering Air had to get special permission to fly.
Hunters who had been dropped in the field before 9/11
didn't know why their rides hadn't come to pick them up as scheduled.

Days went on, we heard about 
miracle survivors,
tragic losses,
heroic acts.

The airspace opened up again,
we received mail and groceries,
my brother re-enlisted along with hundreds of others. 
determined to help solve the problem.
The man we have bought our Christmas tree from for years
worried about his son who had been deployed,
leaving his wife and little kids.

When people don't value life 
it is hard to understand their logic, 
and fight the way they do.
After all this time, I still don't get how they think,
and I am grateful to live in a country 
where lives are important.

Some stories you might not have heard about that day
