Never Forgotten

I still can’t believe I can say I remember it like it was yesterday. It was and still is one of the worst days in history. If I ever have children, I cannot even image describing it to them. I wouldn’t have the desire to do so. None of our teachers or facility members would tell us what was happening. I was nine years old and we had a half day. I remember racing my Russian neighbors home because that was normal back in the day. I love many wonderful Russian and Ukrainian friends, so kindly do not think I have anything against them. May all those who passed away on that terrible rest in peace. Allah Yarhamak! <3
