away from what was
unfolding before them?

Karla, it is a scene that will replay in the minds of all of us that witnessed those events unfold on the TV on that day in infamy. It will rewind and replay in our minds endlessly.

So heartbreaking sad, and the only thing that helps tonight as I sit here is that I can imagine all of the angels that rushed to the sky to help that day.

I keep a journal Karla and everything is written in it by the family, We are on book 16 but we don't need to write this down as we will never forget the innocent lives lost that day.
