Retroblogging 1980: September 11, 1980


Today I got up when mom got us all up. Then I got dressed and went down for breakfast. For breakfast I had rolls. Then I went to school. At school I did math, reading, coloring, and had lunch and came home. When I got home I did some work. And had supper. But before then Dad came home. Yesterday I wote to Audrey. But today Jed wote to Jeff, his friend.

All I can think of when I see journal entries like this from a cool fall September day dated the 11th, is wonder how many other people just got up, got dressed, had breakfast, and went along their day - without an indication that it was going to be one of those dates that you ended up not forgetting due to world events.

I may not remember September 11, 1980, but I can't forget September 11, 2001.

I pray we never do.
