Today is a day that my humans don't like to remember- September 11, the anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

Mom worked in Washington D.C. at the time, Dad was not too far from the Pentagon but in Virginia.  Mom had to take the Metro Subway to the Springfield, Virginia stop to meet up with Dad. Dad wasn't sure he was going to see mom again- she had to pass the Pentagon on the subway to get to him.  He sat at his desk and prayed and prayed.   Finally, Mom called and asked him to meet her at the subway- she was safe.

They headed home.  Grateful to have each other.  And, prayed for those who were not so fortunate.

Today, PAWS TO YOU and salutes to all of the Search and Rescue Working Dogs and the human First Responders who didn't think twice about going into a situation and helping others!
