Reflecting this morning on my long commute to work. the radio station played a 22 minute clip of the newscast that morning. The hair was raised on my arms.
I remember exactly where I was and what I was doing. I happened to watch the entire tragedy on TV as it was happening.
I remember the hours, days and weeks that followed and how proud I was to be part of this great country.
I also remember how brave the men and women were that came to the aid of those victims; the policemen, firefighters, our military men and women and even the residents of New York, that opened their homes to strangers.
I will remember all of the souls that lost their lives that day, I will remember their wives, husbands, children and even those children that will never get to know their parent, because their life was cut short.
I remember and will always be thankful for our service men and women, who put their lives on the line, each and every day so we can live and be free in this great nation that we call the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
GOD BLESS AMERICA. HOME OF THE FREE AND THE BRAVE.
