In Memory of 9/11

I remember America before 9/11.  Incredible to think of the innocence and freedom of those days compared to the way it all changed in only 24 hours. 
Even though the brutal hatred of those who brought about the death and destruction to the Twin Towers, the Pentagon and Flight 93, there was also an expression of the bravery and the stalwart spirit of our American family on that day.

When the members of congress stood on the capital steps and sang America The Beautiful, I wept with sorrow and with pride.
So many things have changed since then.  We, as Americans, are forever changed.  For those who lost someone they loved that day, may the spirit of the universe bless and keep you.  For those who saved lives and gave up their own, thank you and bless you.

What a nice tribute. I have flown my flag every day since 9/11 happened. I think a lot of other people did the same thing--it rekindled the fire of patriotism in our country--sad that something so tragic had to happen to bring about that end result. I'm so proud of America. With all her faults and problems, I don't see people leaving in droves to go live anywhere else. This is a wonderful place to be. Thanks again for reminding us. And thank you so much for providing the link to my blog about the death of 2nd Lt. Joe Cunningham.
