A Day to Remember

I was born on 11/11. A date you may identify as Veterans Day, but for many years it was called Remembrance Day. Today is another 11th day of a month—9/11. It is also a day to remember.

Only young children can’t remember the horrific explosions of two planes crashing into New York City’s Twin Towers and the crash of Flight 93 in a Pennsylvania field, and the flaming impact of a fourth plane striking the Pentagon? Approximately 3,000 lives crossed into eternity that day at the hands of crazed assassins.

The rest of us will always remember 9/11, and hopefully honor those who lost their lives that infamous day. May we never back down to terrorism, but always stand up proudly for democracy and liberty, and pray daily for the United States of America.

In less than two months we Americans will vote in a national election. We will not all vote alike, but we can stand united in our allegiance to our country!

I wrote a memorial article myself a few days ago about the Pentagon Memorial service. I dealt with the fact that we as family need to spend as much time with our family as we can as we are never safe from terriost attacks.One simple way to do this is by giving hugs out and recieving them too. :)
