I too woke up and realized it was 9/11. Hardly seems possible that it was seven years ago that the terrorist attacks occurred. I know many of us remember where we were when we heard about the attacks. Myself I was volunteering at my son's school and there was a TV in the volunteer workroom that we were glued to. Was awe struck as I watched the 2nd plane go into the 2nd tower. And then heard about the Pentagon. We all knew there was no way that this was accidental..that it had been a well planned event by someone..who at the time we did not know. My son was in the second grade and the school was allowing parents to pick up their kids if they wanted to. I chose to leave him in school and keep his life as normal as possible. First, there would be enough time to tell him what happened and second, no way would I let whoever planned this to change
my life if I could help it. As far as I was concerned, that was their goal, to make us hide and be afraid. After telling my son about the attacks I remember him asking me "Why do they hate us so much?". I like many others have a small American flag in my window and it has been there since 9/11/01. A bit sun faded now however. I did not lose anyone that day that I personally know. However, remembrance of the day gives me strength as I fill Christmas stockings to send to the troops overseas. Unfortunately, many of these men and women suffer from "out of sight, out of mind" from the American public. But I do what I can to help people remember.
Josh if you read this have you ever thought about doing a Christmas special on TV and inviting some military families, as well as service men and women to the event. Personally, I would love to see you do a Christmas special, there are still many Christmas songs that you could sing that are not on the Noel CD. And of course I could listen again to any songs that are on the Noel CD. Would love to see Charice, the 16 year old singer from the Philippines sing with you. I'm sure you remember how you would have felt at that age to sing with someone as well known as you are.And Michael Buble, another great singer. I'm sure you could come up with a stellar list of stars that would love to be on your show.
Grobie fans...let us unite and encourage a TV special. Maybe if enough of us request it there would be a chance...never know unless we try.
Everyone take care and have a great day!
