Earlier this year, we were able to travel to New York City with the entire family and our friend Kara. Together, we visited the 9/11 Memorial at Ground Zero.

Of course, we’ve been to the Pentagon Memorial many times. We’ve yet to visit the memorial out in Pennsylvania where Flight 93 crashed in a field.

It’s been 11 years and I still don’t understand it.

I started this blog just a few weeks before 9/11. Obviously, I’ve mentioned it here a time or two … or twenty. Below are the links to just a few of those posts that I think really capture the essence of that time and how we’ve come to the terms with all that happened over the years.

The Week of 9/11 – My blog posts leading up to the actual day and how things were the days immediately after.

Thoughts Before the Anniversary – One year after 9/11, I was worrying about color codes and a repeat attack.

Five Years Since 9/11 – My thoughts as I faced a deployment during the War on Terror.

No More – My post the night that Bin Laden was killed.
