9/11: We Remember

Truffles: Mommy, why does everybody seem so sad today?

Melissa: Sweetie, you weren't born yet, but 13 years ago today 19 terrorists hijacked 4 planes and killed nearly 3,000 innocent people.

Truffles: Why did they do that???

Melissa: Sadly, there are truly evil people out there who despise our wonderful country and everything we stand for. They are mass murderers who need to be rooted out and destroyed.

Truffles: Mommy, were any kitties killed?

Melissa: I don't think so, but many kitties lost their Mommy or Daddy that day. They left for work and never made it home.

Truffles: It's not going to happen again, is it?

Melissa: Absolutely it could, especially if we allow ourselves to forget the lessons we learned on that awful day.

Truffles: Can we do anything else?

Melissa: We can pray for peace, and also thank God for all of the brave men and women who wear our country's uniform and risk their lives everyday to defend our freedom and keep us safe.


  1. Very well said. Thank you Melissa and Truffles.

  2. Nice post. We will never forget either.

  3. If this Evil is not confront and destroyed we are at risk. We love the quote you used it is so true.We will never forgot those who lives were taken far too soon and also we will always remember that evil left unchecked will continue to plague us if we chose to ignore it.

  4. That's beautiful. Thank you for such a thoughtful post, Melissa and Truffles.

    The daily train ride into NYC was somber and quiet this morning. We will never forget.
