Holidays and Celebrations: September 11
Patriot Day – United States
9-11 has become synonymous with the terror attack on USA and the end of the twin towers. Everyone can remember where they were when they first heard the news. I was at Canadian Tire Gas bar filling up to visit my son on his birthday when the horrific news came on the news screens.
To me this day is a day of hope. Only 9 days after my Mother died, my first son was born. My nickname for him was Jay, meaning Joy. He was the sunshine at the end of a long night. He remains my joy. For even though a son is only in his mother’s arms for a short time, he is in her heart forever.
