Never forgotten.

September 12, 2011

Yesterday my heart was heavy as I re-watched all the coverage regarding the 10 year anniversary of September 11th. I sat on the couch as I watched daughters, sons, wives, husbands and parents read the names of their loved ones who died on that day. I was brought back to tears as I heard George W. Bush read from the Bible, looking for courage and strength in those words. I felt as if it was 10 years ago, and I was seeing those images for the first time. In the midst of incredible emotion, there was solace in the strength of all the victims, the strength of the city of New York and the strength of the United States.

After the memorial in the morning, it was so incredible to watch 2 football teams and all their big, bad football players come together, salute the flag and sing the words to our National Anthem. It's proof that regardless of the amount of hate that was displayed on September 11th, the United States will join together, hand in hand, heart and heart, and never forget all the men and woman who died on that unforgettable day. Thank you to those who fought and continue to fight to protect us.
“Time is passing. Yet, for the United States of America, there will be no forgetting September the 11th. We will remember every rescuer who died in honor. We will remember every family that lives in grief. We will remember the fire and ash, the last phone calls, the funerals of the children. “  - President George W. Bush, November 11, 2001
