How 9/11 Turned Into a Happy Day

On 9/11/01, I walked into work and found a group of employees hunched around a TV- they told me that the World Trade Center was burning. They weren't sure why- was it a bomb? A plane? We then watched in horror as another plane few into the 2nd tower. This wasn't a movie. This was real. For days, I as glued to the television, watching the coverage, crying. I picked up the phone and called my loved ones just to say I love you. I never forgot.

2 years ago, 9/11 gained new meaning for me. My little boy decided to make his appearance 3 weeks early. My dad came to visit me in the hospital and he said, "Bummer that his birthday has to be 9/11, huh?" I looked at him with a confused look and said, "No! It is because of my son that we can now smile and celebrate on this day. He's made this day a reason to be happy." I continue to hope that his date of birth will mean that he will keep on surprising everyone and make those around him smile for a lifetime.

Happy 2nd Birthday to my sweet Jackson Robert. You are loved and celebrated in every way.
