Although my son was born this year, he will never forget about the horrific events of September 11th, 2001. As his mother, I will make sure of that.

September 11th, 2001 was a day like any other. I was a junior in high school who had not yet discovered coffee. So, of course, I was dragging in first period. Once I saw a second plane crash into the Twin Towers, I woke right up.

America and this life is a gift and I'll treasure every second, but that day I realized that your life can change in a moment. I became an adult that day.

Fast forward to 2014, thirteen years later and this morning was unlike any morning I've ever had. My son tried applesauce for the first time.

As you can see, it looks like he loves it, but if you could see my face, it would show how much more excited I was.

Now that I'm a parent, all I want to do is protect my child. Part of that protection is educating him about what happened on September 11th, 2001.

He's only four months old now and honestly, I have no clue how I plan on telling him about how almost 3,000 Americans died in one day. I don't know how I'll do it, but I know that I will do it, so he will never forget.
