7 years ago today Ben was a toddler. We had no TV at our house so when BBC announced that a plane had just crashed into the first tower we drove to a friend's house... we turned on the TV just as the towers started to fall. I still cannot watch them fall without crying.
To keep up with the news we installed a TV at home... Ben hated the TV -- he associated it with mom crying. I took up knitting because I needed something to do with my hands to distract myself... The first sweater I ever knit was this red-white-and-blue sweater in honor of 9-11.
