not forgotten

(photo credit here)

I woke up this morning and began my day with Duke.  I hadn't really thought about what day it was until I turned on the TV and watched the OKC Bombing Memorial Ceremony.

As I sat there feeding Duke his rice cereal, I thought about the day this all happened.  I don't remember details, as I was in 3rd grade, but I do remember it.

This year, as a mom, I'm seeing it with completely different eyes.  I held Duke and started crying.  It's just not fair.  It's not fair that moms lost their sweet babies that day.  It's not fair that kids lost their parents.  It's not fair that wives lost husbands.  None of it is fair.

While today is just a normal day for me, it's a very dark day for others.  I know that if the roles were reversed, I would want to know that people are remembering my lost loved one today.  For whatever it's worth, I am remembering.  You are not forgotten.
