8 Years Later, A Day of Mourning

Today marks 8 years ago when the worst terrorist attack occurred on American soil. I can remember that moment like it was yesterday, where I was, when I received the phone call about what was going on and not being able to stop watching all the news channels all day long. Nearly 3,000 people lost their lives that day. Another name is being read today, someone caught in the toxic dust when the towers collapsed, almost 8 years later, he died from lymphoma and lung disease.

My husband lost a cousin in the World Trade Center and his body was never recovered. On this day, we remember all that lost their lives, but Christopher Ciafardini, you will live in the hearts of your family always. You are gone, but will never be forgotten.

This date is difficult, we will always remember those lives that were lost.

My nieces Bday is today (same day, different year), it's just one of those life moments that we cannot choose.

Just wanted to say thanks for all of the blog comments. I haven't gotten any new computer equipment set up yet. Are you using IE8? I can't watch any videos without it skipping. So annoying.

Yes! Thanks for the slow cooker advice. I'm discovering things the hard way. The Keep Warm setting is definitely hot enough for all day cooking, every other setting is too hot.
