I remember that horrible day 18 years ago. We had just moved into our Arizona home 10 days before after a long trip from NY. It was very early in the morning when our phone rang. Knowing that it couldn’t be anything good at that hour, we answered our phone.
It was my son who lived in Arizona calling to tell us to turn on our TV. We were in total shock listening and watching the news that day. I still remember it vividly.
We should never forget the people who died in those towers and the airplanes that went down in NYC that day, the people on the flight that went down in Shanksville, PA, the people on the flight and on the ground that went down in the Pentagon, and the firefighters, the first responders, and police officers who went to help and lost their lives also.
And we should never take anything for granted. Life can end in an instant. So always remember to hold your family close and kiss and hug them good bye every time you leave or they leave your home.
My usual frugal things post is below this one.
