This is my post from last year. It still speaks my feelings about this day and so I'm just going to re-post it. I hope that we never forget this tragic day in our nation's history.
Where were you 10 years ago? I was in the kitchen ~ standing in shock as I watched those planes crash into the Twin Towers. It's still brings tears to my eyes. The wave of patriotism that followed was amazing ~ everywhere you looked there was an American flag proudly flown. The country came together as one that day. Those that lost their lives, that gave their lives, and that lost loved ones are still in my thoughts and prayers.
We are very fortunate that another attack has not occurred. I believe that we have our armed forces to thank for that. No matter what your view of the war taking place is, these men and women deserve our support, deserve our respect, and deserve our gratitude. They have stepped up and volunteered to keep our country safe and free. If this war wasn't being fought over there, it would be here on our land. The next time you see a serviceman or servicewoman, thank him or her. They were not forced to enlisted, they did it of their own freewill because they believe in this country. This is the type of courage that our country was founded on. The United States of America truly is ~ Home of The Free Because of The Brave!
