reflecting and remembering 9/11

The United States Navy Blue Angels (U.S. Navy Photo by Lt. Mike Blankenship ...

We all remember that morning, when time seemingly stood still..
as unbelievable  images unfolded before our very eyes..
each more horrific than  the preceding..
We stood glued to our televisions..
as the gamut of emotions swirled..
ranging from stunned disbelief..
to abject horror..
to anger ..
to raging fury!
We are America..The USA..how could this be happening? 
To us?
and why?
Each year on this anniversary, we once again unite as a nation..
upholding our vow to "Never Forget"..
..to never forget the lives lost..
..to never forget the brave heroes who gave their final actions..
by preventing even more deaths..
while taking their last breaths in a field in rural Pennsylvania...
Remembering the brave firefighters and rescuers..

simply remembering ..
and praying..
praying this shall never ever happen again..
Let us all unite...

remembering the price we pay for freedom is very costly..
Let us renew that feeling of unity..and purpose..and hope..
as Americans...
One nation under GOD....
Let us pray....

and pray..
and PRAY!

  1. I loved your end reminder that we need to pray, pray, pray. Blessings to you today.

  2. Great post. I will never ever forget.



welcome to my world of salty sunkissed breezes..
where time is not measured..
linger leisurely..
sift sugary white sand between your toes..
Make and take those wonderful memories..
leaving behind..only your footprints...
