Take a Moment to Remember

7 years ago today....

I was home watching the Today Show in Littleton with Ariana.  Colby was staying in Manchester. He was still sleeping when the planes struck the WTC. I was watching it happen live and was a little confused and shocked at what was happening. I called Colby to tell him, but since he hadn't seen any of the coverage, he really didn't understand the full scope of what I was describing.  It was a long, scary day watching the news coverage.  

September 11 is Dominic's birthday.  That is who Colby was staying with and they decided to go out that night and celebrate.  Like I said, they didn't really realize the gravity of it all.  Needless to say, it was a pretty solemn night at the bars with the televisions reporting the horrific scenes of the day.  I am sure it was one of Dominic's least favorite birthday celebrations. Unfortunately, I will never forget his birthday.
