How We Spent Our First Day of Fall

We put the boat in at Jekyll Island and went across the sound to Cumberland Island. The weather was very nice until about 2 in the afternoon.

We collected some nice shells and sand dollars, caught some nice flounder, and lost a $200.00 rod &reel.

Oh well....

Do You Remember?

I was in the break room at the dialysis center visiting with my friends when the first tower was hit. We were all watching tv. Then the second tower was hit. I left and went to my office.

As the events unfolded that morning a weird, indescribable feeling came upon me and I think everyone in America.

My husband was working at Ft. Stewart in Hinesville, Georgia. I was able to have a couple quick phone calls with him before they started locking the base down.

I remember feeling a little extra state of panic then those around me. Would Ft. Stewart be attacked too?

I think most Americans felt a state of panic that day, a state of insecurity. We live near a nuclear plant, a navel and an army base. Good targets in my opinion.

What in the world was happening to the greatest country in the world?

I think that was the beginning of many terrorist attacks on our country. I think these attacks are happening everyday in a very real but a desensitized way that we have all ignored. TV, our government, the schools...I believe these are just a few of the tools used to destroy America.

We all know that what's going on in our country today is wrong. The break down of the Christian home, the family....this government.

I hate what is happening to our country, But I am still thankful to live here. I'm thankful to our military and to everyone who sacrificed on 9/11.

This is a sad day in our country but it is also a day of Thankfulness. We do have a lot to be thankful for!

May God continue to bless us all.
