This Day in History September 11, 2001

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERAI’m sure I don’t need to spend a lot of time talking about this, and I have shared my personal story on many occasions (check here), but I just can’t seem to think of anything else.  My daughter was born about two years after this, so she wasn’t even around when this horrific event occurred.  I talked with her about it tonight because it is something that is not even talked about in public schools any more.  That saddens me.  As does the fact that my ex-husband sided with the terrorists.  That is still the first thing that comes to my mind every time 9/11 is brought up.  Unfortunately, two years ago, the Benghazi attack occurred, and there is still no real justice in that situation either.

I am posting the song that Alan Jackson wrote and sang about this tragedy.  It is a significant song for me because it is when I came face to face with the feelings I had stuffed down concerning my ex.  Yes, I remained married to him for another three years or so after this event.  I didn’t want to face what he had said.  To say that the terrorists were justified in the attacks they carried out really hurt me.  When a good friend introduced me to this song, I cried.  And my mom and I saw Alan Jackson live, and I was so glad he sang this song.  However, this song was actually met with discontent at his concert.  I was rather shocked at that.  Oh, and Taylor Swift did cover this song at one of her concerts, and it did not go well for her either. I don’t really understand, but I will post the video here. May we never forget!
