Weekly Wrap-Up for September 11 2020

So for the last few months I have been rather silent around here beyond reviews. For the last year and a half we have been on a rollercoaster ride of trying to find a retirement assignment, finding out the military eliminated our current duty assignment and more. In December, we found out we were moving to a new duty station in Charlotte for our last duty assignment. The move came quickly and without a lot of time to prepare.

In February, we moved, spent roughly a month living in hotels while the military movers packed our home in Texas up and then us traveling to North Carolina and finally trying to find somewhere to live in our “new-to-my husband and children” town. We are in Charlotte, NC somewhere I became familiar with as a girl. From 1978 to 1987 we lived close to Charlotte, and my first actual job was at Carowinds. It thrilled me with the idea my children would get to visit the theme park I worked out. But then COVID-19 occurred, and our ideas for this past spring and summer went out the window.

Yet, today, I think back and remember where I was on this day in 2001 when the World Trade Center buildings, the Pentagon and a place in Pennsylvania changed forever when airplanes crashed into these areas. I think of all those who lost loved ones, of all the children who grew up without a parent or parents, and even those children who lost their lives that day.

I think of the brave men and women who answered the call of their country and willingly stepped up to defend the United States. On this day, may our country remember what happened that day and the emotions and courage that came forth from the ashes.

May we never forget 9-11!
