Today...

Today, I am reminded...

Of so many people that lost loved ones....

Of so many children that will grow up and never
have known their father, or their mother.

Of how many heroes that were made that one tragic
day.

Of horrible images from the TV.


Those same images that were played over and over.

Those scenes that you couldn't watch without crying, even
from the comfort and safety of your own home.

Those scenes of devastation, desperation, and horror mixed in
with the scenes of honor, patriotism and heroism.



Today, I am free...thanks to all those people fighting to
make that possible.

Today, I feel like my children are safe because of all those brave
men and women.

Today, I am proud of my country.

Today, I am thankful.
