My husband and I were getting our 5 year old daughter ready for pre-school. My mother called & told us to turn the television on because a plane had just crashed into the world trade center. I remember listening to the news reporter argue with a caller who claimed that a plane had flown into the tower. The reporter tried to tell her that it was a fire, but not a plane. The caller got hysterical at the reporter, and at that moment the second plane hit the second tower. The reporter was humbled in a flash. We took pictures of our daughter standing on our deck. Beautiful flowers were in the background. The picture is forever imprinted with the date 9-11-01. It hangs on our fridge, and we think of the victims every time we look at it.
