On September 11th, my mind of course goes back to what started out as a sunny and beautiful Tuesday morning and turned into an unthinkable nightmare. We lived here in the Washington DC area and Carl was working not far from the Pentagon. While we were not directly affected by those events, we knew people who were.
As you know there are many heroes and stories of that day. One story in particular that really touches my heart is the story of 2 Golden Retrievers in New York City (not far from Ground Zero) named Hope and Darwin who survived that day. Eric and Nan now live just down the road from us here in Northern Virginia. We became friends when they adopted one of our foster dogs named Abby. I heard from Nan this morning and like so many of us, she wonders how it could be 9 years.
Today I'd like to share Nan's very compelling story with you. You can read the story by clicking here to get to a link that also provides pictures.
