Nine years ago, our lives forever changed as Americans. Generations who had only known peace suddenly had their world yanked out from beneath them. Yet at the same time, the fabric of the spirit of America was forever strengthened as those who lost their lives ultimately showed true courage and patriotism as they struggled to save the lives of so many. Pause today. Wherever you may be, pause. Reflect. Remember. Never ever forget the tragedies of today. Never forget the eerie silence as every single plane landed and no longer flew free through the skies. Never forget the lives and families of those who were lost and torn apart. And may the American spirit of courage always live within your heart just as it did in so many that day. May we all be blessed with such courageous tenacity when faced with desperate tragedy. God Bless America.
Thank you both for your comments. It’s a tough day for many and I will continue to post about it as long as I blog.
Beautiful post, seriously beautiful. It is so true. So hard when there are people who do not take pause at any point in the day and remember, I could never ever imagine going through that date again without flashing back. So tragic and so sad, and yet so strong. Thanks for the sentiments.
As a Canadian, I am still shocked and deeply saddened by this tragic event. I felt tremendous pain for your country. I still remember.
God bless you all.
