Have any of you ever scrapped about 9/11? About where you were, ect.? We were in NY a month shy of the year anniversary and I have pics of the hole left behind. I just haven't done a page yet. But it such a turning point in our history that I know I should. I mean if my grandmother had scrapped about where she was when pearl harbor got bombed I think I would treasure that.

I did a scrapbook page of 9/11. I put my thoughts and feelings, photo and article clippings. I thought it would be something my kids could look back on and remember those that perished. I even kept a time magazine from that year.

I was pregnant with my oldest daughter when the attacks happened and can remember it like it was yesterday!

We live an hour away from the city and my FIL was working a few blocks away at the time. It was a very emotional day. I had an OB appointment that day and it was the only time my DD"s heartbeat wasn't 155 or higher. Very strange.

Anyhow...

We have a ton of articles, pics and more and I really should do somehting with them...it's just hard to.

WOW what story's everyone has to share about that day. I never thought about doing a page on it. I have a ton of articles and magazines but just have never done anything with it.

Chanda, That idea is incredible to think about our grandkids or great-grand kids reading and see the work we are doing today.... I would love to see the pictures you have of the hole!

Cindy, I can only imagine how scary that day was for you...A day in our lives never to be forgotten.
God Bless the family's that lost someone that day.... They are all truly Hero's!

Oh I remember that day like it just happened.

I was in the hospital, pregnant with Jeremy wondering if I was going to pass the kidney stone that had me in there or lose Jeremy because I would need surgery. I was watching Good morning America that was live with the Twin Towers in the background. When the first plane hit I even said out loud 'What in the world just happened' Watching everything unfold live was like watching a movie you couldn't turn off, it just didn't seem real. I can remember even saying 'this is a very sick joke'

I will be scrapping what happen on 9/11 when I do the year 2001 as that day changied the world as we know it.
