I remember....

I am not even sure what to write today. I have spent the last 5 minutes staring at the blank Blogger screen----how do you start a post on a day like today?!

I dont want to rehash my "where was I" story and I dont think I need to tell you that today makes me sad. It makes all of us sad. I guess I just want to say that I remember. I think about it all the time. I have friends still fighting for our freedom in Afghanistan, Iraq, all over the world. I have a friend who gave the ultimate sacrifice in that fight.

However, today, even though it is a sad day for all of us, I cannot help but be proud of our USA. They (whoever they may be) can hit us right where it hurts...at home...but we will stand up again in pride and fight for what is ours and what is right. We are a strong and resilent nation; the past 5 years have shown that. Whether or not you agree with the war or the President or all the politics involved, you cannot deny the strength and resilency of the USA.

God Bless America!

Amen. It's been a hard to live in this mixed up world knowing what has happened, what is happening and what will continue to happen. But we all should be proud to be Americans - whatever that means to us individually - being an American is a privilege.
