Let Us Not Forget...

September 11, 2001.  Five years later and we still shake our heads in disbelief.  Pearl Harbor, the Kennedy Assassination, Challenger space shuttle, 9/11, we all remember what we were doing and where we were at the precise moment we learned of these national tragedies. Our lives, as we knew it, has been forever changed.  We have taken  so much for granted. Simple things like greeting friends and family at the gate in the airport, walking through airport security with your shoes on, or taking your diet coke on the plane.   Yes, September 11, 2001 was a wake up call for our country. A shocking reality – there really are people who want to destroy this land that we love. And while we pause on this anniversary to remember the horror of that day, and how it has impacted our lives, there are those that are reminded every moment of every day. A wife wakes up, reaches for her husband and feels the cold sheets next to her.  A child yearns and cries for her mother that can not be there to comfort her, and a mother and father mourn for their child. Not just today, every day. 
 
 
On this fifth anniversary of the day the nation mourned together; let us not forget:
      • Those who died
      • Those who love those that died
      • The Firemen, Policemen, and Rescue Workers
      • Freedom and the Soldiers fighting to protect it
      • The brevity of life
      • To tell those you love, you love them
      • To live each day as if it were your last
 
God bless our great country.
