Days 253-255: Ten Years Ago…

This weekend everyone was talking about where they were ten years ago during the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. I was sitting in junior history class when we first heard the news. The school had just installed controversial TV’s in all the classrooms, and that day was probably the most important day to have them. We still went to all of our classes that day, but we mostly stared at the TV’s in awe and shock. It’s hard to believe it’s been ten years. My heart still goes out to all of those involved. Things have definitely changed over the last ten years.


Ten years ago, the Kansas City Power & Light District hadn’t been built. It has really changed the feel of downtown Kansas City.

Friday evening we enjoyed a Happy Hour at Maker's Mark at the P&L District.


Ten years ago, this child wasn’t alive. In fact, his parents probably weren’t even dating yet.

My cousin's toddler, Izac, plays basketball during a family get-together on Saturday. We had so much fun spending the day outside & catching up.


Ten years ago, the people at Platte Woods United Methodist probably had very different issues on their minds.

In honor of Sept. 11, my church, along with the Methodist churches across Missouri, participated in volunteer projects all weekend long. Our church packed 240,000(!) Numana meals for the 3 million starving people in Colombia, South America.
