9/11


We are America. 

We are strong.  We have shown that.  Our ancestors built this country, the government, this convenience we have in this life.  We’ve fought for our freedom, and won, and have protected that simple right we have, as Americans, for years.

We got knocked down. 

We got beaten, bruised. 

We had our feeling of safety vandalized.

We had our hearts, our souls, our perception changed.

But, We Did Not Fall.

We rose up higher, stronger, wiser, a bit worse for the wear, but still loud and here.  We came out prouder than ever to call ourselves Americans.  We strung our flags up high, we smiled at one another, we joined hands, and became unified.

United We Stand.

This isn’t about an Us versus Them.  This is about no political party.  No Agenda.  No belief.  No partisan action.

This is about Us, as a whole, as a Human Race.

This day, sadly, is what reminds me what it’s like to not be unified.  What did you do on September 10, 2001?  How did you treat those around you? 

Now think about what you did on September 11, 2002.  What did you do?  How did you treat those around you?

It’s terrible that a tragedy is what brought us together as a country, but let us not forget that it did bring us together.  Do not let the everyday tear us back apart.

May God Continue to Bless America.

  1. I will never forget that day. I don’t think I was scared that day either. It was so un real I didn’t know how to react. What was coming next? What would happen tomorrow?
    I was worried about my kids at school and my wife at work. What if I could not get them home? Seems crazy now but I had no idea what was going to happen next for that entire day.
