Mi Familia

That’s about all the Spanish I know. 
Ten years ago today, I was heading into work when I heard the news on the radio.  I got to work (and though the idea was to keep working, to let terrorists know that we would not let them stop us – no one in the office was actually working) and sat there, close to tears.  All I really wanted to do was to go home, get together with my family and feel safe. 
Me with my older brother and sisters.
My heart goes out to those who lost loved ones and were truly devastated by these heinous acts of terrorism. 
I am proud to be part of this great country, and relish the many freedoms that I have.  No one will ever be able to take that away.

    I LOVE this picture of your fabulous family!! (part of them)

  2. Thank you for speaking out today. This picture of your beautiful family speaks so much about what we are keeping safe–and what we stood to lose.

    Yes, I distinctly recall trying to teach that day. The campus did not close…but no one could concentrate.

  4. Erin says:

    Thanks, Layna! It's one of my favorites as well (although I really, really, really wish I at least had a shirt on, lol!)

  5. Erin says:

    Thanks! It's hard for me to put words to some of these more emotional events. It's probably easier for me to express myself through photograpsh than words.

  6. Erin says:

    It was hard to concentrate. There were so many questions, and concerns, and what nows?

Leave your two cents here (three cents is always better!)
