Remembering September 11, 2001

Being that today is September 11th, I was really reminescing today about the events of September 11, 2001 and the days that followed. To give you a little bit of background, we lived in Pocatello, Idaho at the time and I was working full-time at at Plastic Surgery Assosiates as a Medical Transcriptionist to help put Morgan through school. He was attending Idaho State University at the time working on his Bachelors degree in Business. Cassidy and Lund were about 3-years-old and 1 1/2-years respectively. The picture I am including is of Lund standing by a flag in my in-laws yard the day after September 11th. The Boy Scouts had put the flag up the day after the Twin Towers bombing. This was a scrapbook page I had made back then and it was good to get it out again and review the past. It was a scary time for America and the thing I think I remeber the most is when we all filed into the Institute on campus. It was packed and people were standing everywhere because there was not room for all the crowds and we listened to the Prophet speak to the members of the church. That was a beautiful broadcast and really helped in a time of turmoil.

Good Looking boy, flag and yard.
Good memories and a bad day, but one that may be a day we woke up and grew.
