On this day I was nine months pregnant and having had a doctors appointment. I had gone into work early to get some things done before my appointment. I was driving to my doctors appointment that morning when I heard the news. How awful I thought. I didnt exactly realize how awful until I arrived at the doctors office when I saw this on tv. This was the most horrible thing I had ever seen. All those incident people. I saw the doctor and he scheduled me to be induced the next morning. I went home competely in shock, sad for all those families. But yet I was excited about having a new baby tomorrow. But how could I be happy. Many people had just lost their parent, grandparents, husbands, wife and children. All I could think of was those children who would never see Mommy or Daddy again. How to you explain this to children? But yet I had many things to get done before my baby arrived. I ended up going into labor that night. My healthy baby boy was born at 10:50 am.. What a birthday. I felt so quilty for being happy on this day because of so much saddness. But life goes on. There is not a day that does not go by that I dont remember the victoms and family of 911.
