Nine years ago we didn’t think of September 11 as being any different than any other day of the month. Eight years ago it was totally set apart from any other day of the year or our entire lifetime. Today the sky is blue and the sun is shining just as it was in 2001. The same news show is on my tv, but my heart is totally changed. I have always believed that we live in the best country in the world. I am so sorry that there are people in this world that feel that they need to strike us down because of that. My heart goes out to those that lost their lives on that fateful morning and to their families. My heart also goes out to the families that have lost their loved ones to the war on terrorism in the years since and unfortunately to those in the future.
It is 8:46 am and the bells just toled and there was a moment of silence, my eyes are filled with tears and my heart is heavy, but I still believe with all my heart that it will take a whole lot more than what they did to us on that day to tear us down. I believe now and I will continue to believe for as long as my heart beats that we are and will continue to be the ” ‘UNITED’ States of America”. GOD BLESS AMERICA!
