I had just graduated high school and was at my county's college's library when I heard the news from a sobbing librarian as I was using one of the computers. Class was dismissed early. Not long after I met my college boyfriend. There was a candle vigil at the school as well. At the end someone played "Taps" on their horn and I cried. It was "Patriot's Day" at Mini Me's school. She had to come in USA colors.
9/11 Shouldn't be forced down America's throats, yet our government and media don't care. So I just hug my kid a little tighter and change the channel.
