I will never forget that day, 12 years ago. I was walking my kids to school when I heard a kid tell the crossing guard, "Did you hear what happened in New York?" The lady nodded and motioned for him to say nothing more. I went home and out of curiosity turned on the TV. It took every thing I had not to run back to that school and grab my children and hide.
Daisy was only a few years old at that time, and I can recall crying and holding her tight. I kept my kids home from school the next day. Not sure what to think, scared of what was to come.
