Tomorrow is the 10th anniversary of 9-11. A day that I am sure everyone (young excluded) remembers what they were doing at the moment they heard the news of the second plane flying into the second tower. It is still fresh in my mind and the feelings….. surprise, confusion, fear, and vulnerability. And the questions! Why? Who? Will there be more? Our morning….our world was shattered.
While remembering those we lost with their families left behind, and the Heroes, I am also remembering how we have changed our own lives as well. Over the years, I have heard of many life-changing decisions that were started from remembering 9-11. It is interesting to hear how 9-11 has changed people’s lives. Some took classes; others changed jobs, many took up a new hobby or traveled. Did 9-11 change your life?
Remembering changed our life and our lifestyle. Dan and I decided we did not want to keep working until our retirement age. That’s when we started planning our 5-to-10-year plan to retire early. We retired and started full-time traveling in our motorhome over 2 years ago.
I don’t have any photos today, but I found some wonderful artwork in Etsy. This is just one of the many ways we are remembering.
