I was completely oblivious of true evil in the world.
The worst stories that this country has endured all occurred well before I arrived on Earth.
We were schooled about the American Revolution.
Slavery and the Civil War.
The poor immigrants that I descend from.
The Great Depression. The Holocaust.
And Pearl Harbor.

I never knew that ten years ago that it would be my turn to experience real history in my lifetime.....
A date that is etched in my brain forever.
I could tell you where I was that day....but that doesn't matter.
It is about where I wasn't.
I wasn't where too many lives were lost in front of everyone's eyes in a flash.
The only good thing that came about that day?
Our little Bunny was due exactly 40 weeks later.......
Life blooms in the midst of despair.
