September 11


Every year I say I’m not going to mention it on the blog; not going to do a “memorial” post . . everyone who reads my blog will always remember September 11, 2001. Where we were; what we were doing; being glued to the television for news coverage.  I hope no one forgets.  I hope we never lose our resolve to keep these United States and our freedoms that our forefathers worked so hard to gain for us.

As the day draws to a close, I find I can’t let it end without a memorial post.

For those who lost loved ones during the events of September 11, 2001 or those who have lost loved ones fighting the war on terror, I’m so sorry for your loss and though I cannot say that I know how you feel, nor can I comprehend how you get through you days, and though I don’t know your names or you faces, I think of you often.  For all of you, and for those who are serving our country or who have ever served our country, to protect the freedoms we hold so dear and so often take for granted, THANKS!

I will never forget!

    Thank you for the post. No, we should always remember this. Watched Glen Beck on Fox last night and he had a show about it. Showed pictures that the site is basically still looking the same for the last 8 years. It does seem very odd that the government and others have not built or rebuilt structures in place of where the world trade center stood. I remember how we felt for a long time afterwards – patriotisim was everywhere! Flags were attached to nearly every car you saw on the rode. I miss that display of patriotism. Watching the show and seeing the films of the disaster as it was captured brought me to tears again.
    Thanks again for the reminder.

    I’m glad you decided to do a memorial post again this year. I don’t think we should ever get tired of doing that.

    Becky, we did the same thing. We will never forget! May God bless America now and forever. We appreciate our men and women serving and all the sacrifices made throughout the years. They are all heroes. Whenever I see someone in uniform, I thank them. Some are surprised, but all seem thankful.
