I had a discussion with my children this morning about the somberness of today. I got goosebumps just speaking with them about September 11, 2001. After I began the conversation, then I started having the questions of "how do I describe this to my 6 & 8 year olds?" (I probably should have thought that through first) The important part is that they know about the sacrifice many innocent people made that day for our country, the professionals in the first responder sectors that worked so hard to help others, and the sacrifice those that protect our country continue to make.
