9/11

Five years ago today was Nathan's first day studying at Biola in the homeschool coop program STAR. We arrived at school on time and a little harried from having to actually fight traffic for him to go to school.

Nathan still remembers being sent home to pray. They gathered all of the students in the auditorium and recounted the events that had taken place in America that morning. As we sat listening I was in disbelief that the Pentagon had been hit. As the daughter of a military serviceman I was taught that this was impossible.

We pause to pray again for the families and people affected by this tragedy. It is strange not to be in America watching the memorials on the news with millions of others. Or perhaps participate in one. We can only read online and remember.
