9/11

Eleven years ago on 9/11 the sky was a vivid blue… my son was in kindergarten.  IHeart was at work when my manager came down the hall and said her brother had called and a plane had hit one of the World Trade Center Towers. Instantly, I was back standing on the observation deck gazing over NYC.  Although my visit was years before, I felt connected to these buildings.  I’m sure anyone who had ever visited the towers or the Pentagon feels the same.

Today on 9/11 my son drove himself to school.  The sky was as clear as it was eleven years ago as I made my way to a different employer.  Everyone’s lives have changed and we have had to move on, but we must never forget.

Americans cannot afford to become complacent with each passing anniversary of 9/11 .  Vigilance is a must to keep our country secure in the world today and one only needs to glance back into history to confirm that a strong military presence is mandatory.   Expensive?  Yes, but when one considers the alternative…

America is not immune the fate of other fallen countries.  Jobs, health care, social security, and the rest won’t matter if the USA ceases to exist.  NEVER FORGET 9/11.

9/11 Wear your Eagle

What can be said about 9/11 that already hasn’t been?  Probably nothing.  One’s things for sure, every American’s life changed in some way.  Loved ones still grieve for those lost and others carry scars, visibly and or mentally from their witness of that day.

 But in the face of horror, the passengers of Flight 93 showed true American spirit; they stood and fought for what they believed in.  Our military continues that quest to remove the threat of terrorism, so that we can go about our normal lives. 

 On that fateful day, hundreds of brave firefighters climbed the towers thinking of only those in need of their help.  None perceived themselves as heroes, only doing their job as they did every day. Three hundred forty-three of FDNY’s finest never went home.

On the tenth anniversary of 9/11 let us display our American spirit with pride and remember all those who gave their all, literally and without a second thought, for our country and us!

NEVER FORGET!
