Peach State says: We Will Never Forget!

I just want to honor the memory of those lost in the tragic events 12 years ago. How fresh the events of that morning remain in my heart. I remember the numbing silence as I sat watching the coverage of the first plane hitting the tower and running to tell my husband the news as he was getting ready for work. I stood there, with him, and witnessed the second plane hit the other tower. Stunned…sick at my stomach…with non-stop flowing tears of sadness and fear. The days events continued to unfold with the notification of the Pentagon being hit and the one lone plane still in the sky. The stories of the valiant, and their sacrifices, as the one lone plane was brought down in the quiet and solitary countryside. The first responders and the media coverage of the fear driven masses as they evacuated the areas. These tragic scenes are burned deep into my memory along with every other American…

We Will Never Forget!

Just a moment…just a pause…just remember!

We returned to a new normal with a stronger resolve and spirit…facing the daily challenges with a new outlook and respect. Together we rose as a nation and a people. Thank you for taking this moment with me!

“May your cup runneth over with joy, love and laughter oh, and really fabulous coffee!”

About justbetweencousins

We are first cousins who live farther apart from each other than we would like. We thought this blog would give us a chance to visit with each other as well as maybe share a few insights about life. We are both middle aged and until recently both of us had kids the same age (nearly grown). But then the Peach State cuz adopted a son, so she has four now. Heart of Dixie cuz has two daughters. We have a couple of things which are prominently in common (although I'm sure there are actually more): We vacation at our Mema's beach house in Panama City Beach, Florida - until recently, we did so with all of our kids. We both sing - although Heart of Dixie cuz is not currently singing anywhere right now. We both write. We are both Christians, although Peach State cuz is Baptist, and Heart of Dixie is currently floating about between the Anglican church, the Methodist church, and the Episcopalian church. Long story.
