Tuesday - 911 Remembrance

First, let me state that is in NO way a political blog. I simply wanted to take a moment to remember the day that changed not only America but the world as a whole.

See America has always been looked to as the country that was invincible when it came to terrorist attacks. That’s not to say that there have never been any prior to 911, but what ever may have been was pretty much explained away as some lone person or persons acting and not that of a larger mass.

On September 11, 2001 that changed. That date forever brought on a multitude of changes in and around the US.

So today I’d like to take a moment and remember those who lost their lives on 911, many in the buildings and planes. Many who went in to try and rescue those in the World Trade Center. And to remember those who are fighting still today, due to the events that happened six years ago. Regardless of your thoughts on the war, we have soldiers fighting who I want to remember and thank them for what they do.

Again, nothing political about the war, just remembrance for those who’ve died and those who still serve. Please feel free to leave comments as long as it's not a political comment. Today is not the day for those.

The men and women who serve our country are the true hero's who have shaped this country. No matter your political views, because they don't care - they will go no matter what. I personally would like to have no more deaths because of this heinous act - too many from 9-11 and since.

I miss the unity we felt after 9-11. It was so great to feel as one country.

My brother is in the U.S. Navy. He has served so long he was part of Operation Desert Storm and Operation Iraqi Freedom. He will retire this year and I'm so proud of him and his fellow sailors. He has been to the Middle East 6 times now, his duties are done.

Remembering the comment Jack Nicholson's character said in A Few Good Men. Had to do with us being able to sleep at night because of the men on the wall. My heart and prayers go out to the men and women of the US armed forces.

Great post, Vicki. I applaud your intention and request that people not make this political.

It's so wierd to be in another country on this anniversary. All day I felt disconnected.
