Always Remember – 9/11

My son was telling me how at school they refer to September 11th as “America Day.”  I then asked him if he knew why, and if they talked about what happened that day at school.  He said they didn’t, so I had to find an honest, yet non scary way to explain what happened.  I told him how we honor that day for the Americans that died, and the Americans that risked and gave their lives to help others – that’s the heart of what makes America strong.  We have come a long way from our previous troubles to this point of unity, even though we have an even longer way to go in a lot of our issues.  This day always weighs on me because I remember so vividly when it happened, and the panic that surrounded the major event.  I always hope for my peers, and the next generation we move to a more peaceful and tolerant time.  We are all in this together.  American-Flag

Remember to keep those directly affected, and those still suffering in your thoughts and prayers.  Also keep our brave service men and women fighting on a daily basis to protect us.
