While I would not normally write a blog today, I feel the need to honor this day. Please bear with me.
I remember exactly what I was doing on this day in 2001. Actually, there is not much I don't remember about this day or the weeks following. The fear and realization of what was happening. For lack of a better phrase, my lose of innocence as an American. I remember family coming together just to reassure that all was well and mourning together for those that lost theirs. I remember bravery and unity like I had never witnessed. I remember silence... total and complete silence.
I am proud of being an American! I may not always agree with what our government does or says, I do believe in us as people and, in our strength and unity. And most of all, even if our Constitution is hanging by a thread, I believe we will survive. God Bless America!!
I have lost friends and I have known others that have lost more. Our country will never be the same but, I honestly believer that we can be stronger! Today, my heart goes out to those who lost loved ones that day and continue to do so today to protect us from this ever happening again!
