Today I did not watch the news or any special coverage from nine years ago.
Today I gave my daughter extra hugs and kisses.
Today we colored, read books and played with dinosaurs.
Today I told her I loved her at least a million times.
Today I felt fear, sadness, shock, terror and loss all over again.
Today I remembered how our country can unite as Americans.
Today I am grateful for the brave passengers on Flight 93, who may have saved hundreds of lives in Washington, DC (including mine).
Today, and every day, I thank them.
