So it just dawned on me that I never shared pictures from our amazing trip to go see the Braves with Jeremy's parents back in July. It was my first major league sporting event of any kind, and we had such a good time! The game was wonderful, and watching the boys make such fun memories with Papa and Gigi made it even better! Enjoy the pics!

Where were you, and what were you doing when you found out that everything in the United States had changed forever?
Now, fourteen years later, I am just sitting here thinking about how truly terrifying that day was. I made it to the aquatic center only to find out that my class had been canceled. My instructor’s sister and her sister’s fiancé both worked at the North tower. She and her family had not heard from either of them (they both were fine.) Auburn University decided not to cancel classes that day. They felt that it would send the wrong message to the terrorists. Hmm. Maybe so, but all I wanted to do was sit in my room and keep my eyes glued on the TV. When I made it to my social work class that afternoon, a classmate of mine said that her dad had been in a meeting in the north tower that morning. He got done with his meeting and walked outside the building to leave. He heard something really loud, looked up, and the plane crashed right above him.
Let’s remember the people who died fourteen years ago today and their families. I cannot even imagine the pain they feel, especially when most of the United States has moved on, and forgotten how broken we were as a nation that day. I hope that I will never face another day like that in my lifetime, but I probably will. I just wish that people would be so patriotic and proud of our country all the time, not just when disaster strikes on our soil.
