I told them that seven years ago today, before they were born and when Gavin was still in his birthmommy's tummy, there were some very bad men who stole airplanes and crashed them into buildings and killed lots of lots of people. This was a very sad day and we need to remember this day as a special day in thanks for our great country and for our strong army (to my little boys, army means military) and our government.
Me: Well, the guys that drove the airplanes died, but their leaders didn't.
Me: Grant. No I'm not, sweetie. I wish I was. This was a very sad day.
