16 Years Later


16 years later and I can still remember that day like it was yesterday that I was paralyzed to that spot on my bed as I watched the horror unfold on the television in front of me. Instead of Motivation Monday, we are dedicating today to those who lost their lives in this horrible tragedy.

I have been sitting here looking at this screen for what seems like hours trying to form words but there are absolutely no words for this post. There is just tears and silence as we remember those whom have been lost in a tragedy that should have never happened.

As a child, whenever the subject of JFK dying was brought up, the adult would always say that they remember exactly where they were and what they were doing when they heard about it. I never thought that I would have one of those moments in my life but I do all I can say is NEVER FORGET. Never forget those who lost their lives protecting innocent lives in those buildings. Never forget the feeling you had when this first happened, where a country united to comfort one another in a time of need. Never forget to live each day to its fullest because you never know when it will be your last.

Here is a picture you can print for your child to participate in Remembering 9/11 and make this day a beautiful one by filling our social media with remembrance pictures not garbage today! (click the link below the image to print this out)
