Remembering September 11th
Last year I shared how I told Liam and Stella the tragic story of September 11, 2001. I told them so they would understand why I was sad, so they would be aware that so many people lost lives and loved ones on this awful day in 2001. I wanted them to know that brave Americans risk their lives everyday to secure our freedom, and that we are a resilient and strong nation.

My two kiddos remember that moment and one day, when theyโ€™re older, Hattie and Finn will remember me telling them this story, too. It is important for me to talk about 9/11 with them and discuss what it means to be an American. When we celebrate holidays like Memorial Day and Independence Day, I want them to know why our independence and freedom is so important.

As always, my thoughts and prayers are with the survivors, thinking of their loved ones today.
