Remembering 9/11

As I was listening to the radio taking my kid to school I was pleased to hear the DJs and callers not only talking about the hurricane but also taking the time to remember the importance of today. This is the day America changed forever. Most people will focus on the negative changes but I am choosing not to do so. I will not remember today’s date as only a time of mourning but also as a day of pride. Why pride? Because on this day seven years ago we the American people put aside our petty differences and instead stood together and did everything we could do as individuals and as a nation to help out our fellow brothers and sisters of this great nation.  No one was immune that.  Rich, poor, black, white, and all the colors in between were affected.  We were all red, white, and blue Americans. The terrorists thought that they would destroy America but they were wrong. We do what we in America have always done in the face of tyranny. We stood together and said you will not knock us down, you will not destroy us. Don’t tread on me is a motto not forgotten. We stood as a nation with a backdrop of red, white and blue. I love America with all my heart and I’m proud to be a citizen.

Remember today in any way you see fit. I will try to honor those who died and sacrificed their lives to save others in the best way possible.  Be nice to each other. Be a proud American.
