This is a bitter day. A day I will never forget. No sweetness about it except for the memory of joining in prayer with my friends. We were fearful and crying out to God, waiting on word from our loved ones and wondering if tragedy would come to Georgia as well.
My friend at Be Still and Know wrote a beautiful tribute after September 11th nine years ago. I have always been a fan of Mr. Rogers, so her words just resonated with me.
Also, tomorrow is the sixth anniversary of Carter Martin's beautiful ascent to heaven, after a battle with cancer. He was just 7 years old. You can read his story here: Carter Samuel Martin. Although his family doesn't write on the page anymore, they are actively fighting the battle of childhood cancer, partnered with our school in an annual campaign to raise money for the cure.
