Our mornings are starting to cool off -which usually happens this time of year- so we have a few good hours of outside time. Saturday morning we headed to the park, Hazel really like to swing now, she’ll giggle, and smile real big often requesting more! It seems like just yesterday she was begging me to take her out of the swing because she hated it, but I guess that’s what happens when the seasons change.
Saturday morning we also visited Healing Field in Tempe. It was quite amazing, breathtaking, and overwhelming all in the same moment. Each flag represented a person who died on 9/11, each flag had the person’s name, and specific information about that person’s life. I couldn’t help but want to read about all the people, to get a quick glimpse into their lives. All these lives now gone. I will never forget visiting this site, seeing all these flags, and a feeling that I can’t quite make words of, but it felt like closeness. I felt close to these people, like they were watching, watching all of us read about them and the life they leave behind. Where were you on September 11th?
