Never Forget

I remember September 11th seven years ago…it was the most beautiful September day. The sky was an amazing blue, the sun was warm, and no clouds were to be seen. The morning had an autumn feel….the temperature was cool and the air was crisp. I remember the feeling of being so alive. It didn’t seem possible that on that day, the most horrendous disaster could occur.

Today marks the seventh anniversary of the September 11th attacks and we remember all who lost their lives that day. We remember the 2,974 innocent men, women and children who were going about their daily lives that beautiful September morning…to have it all suddenly taken away. We remember the heroes that sacrificed their lives to save others. We honor the firefighters, the police, and emergency workers who worked to save lives. We extend our thoughts and prayers to the families and friends of those who were lost. We honor the men and women in the Armed Forces who work to protect our freedom.

However you decide to commemorate September 11th is your choice. Whether a special ceremony, moment of silence, prayer, or flag flown…it’s your personal choice. We are fortunate to live in a country where we have the freedom of personal choice.

Just remember….Never forget
