  •  A similar memory (7+ / 0-)

    I remember watching the ongoing horror for the first few days with a type of shocked, morbid fascination, all the while maintaining my composure.

    Then I saw footage, or a picture, of what appeared to be a mother holding her baby in one of the towers.

    Perhaps she had brought her newborn in to show her co-workers. Or perhaps it was for some other reason.

    That's when I, a father of a one-year old at the time, with a second child to be born two months later, finally lost it.

    For God's sake, if nothing else motivates us to do all that it takes to win this election, then let our children's future be the inspiration we need to act.
