Hi, SE readers. You’re with Mae today. As an American, it’s hard to write a post on September 11th without addressing the tragedy that befell this nation in 2001. It’s something that’s going to stay with us forever, imprinted on our minds and hearts. To this day, I remember where I was and exactly what I was doing when I “heard the news.” They say those who learned of Pearl Harbor never forgot either.

Today, my great-nephew is joining the ranks of the Navy. I am so proud of him! We had a party in August to wish him well and to let him know how much we love and support him. Today, he is being inducted. It’s bizarre to think he was only a year old when the towers fell, also bizarre to think he should join the ranks of brave service men and women on this day.
