It was a tragedy
Driving in to school and work this morning- my daughters and I talked about what today is. We talked about what happened seven years ago today. I will never forget that day. I will never forget how I felt- the things I thought- and the things that we went through for the next three months..... the next year. It was a moment in time when we were unified by fear- by anger that we had been attacked right here on our soil. It was a horrible time- and yet it was an amazing time of unity. For a brief millasecond- it didn't matter if you were democrat or republican. We hugged each other at the supermarkets, we stood in line and talked to people we didn't know because we all had something in common. We stopped at fire stations and thanked firefighters for their service. We had ribbons tied on our car antenes- and had ribbons on our shirts. We had stickers on our cars and flags flying outside our houses. We sang the songs and prayed the prayers..... and said we would never forget. I didn't think we would ever be normal again. I think some attitudes are worse now. No- I know some are worse now. Just look at our country now. I am amazed.
Have you seen the images of what happened on tv today? Have you heard about it at all? Well- I remember. And I am proud to be an American. I am PROUD of my military. I am PROUD of my president. We have much to be thankful for.
