We all know where we were, what we were doing, and how terribly awful it was and I don't want to dwell on that.
I want to remember how we came together as a nation in a way that I had never seen in my lifetime.
People risked their lives to save and recover those who were victims.
People donated money.
People donated time.
People donated their own blood in record numbers.
People joined the military.
People found Jesus.
People realized that life can change forever in an instant and it shouldn't be taken for granted.
People were a little bit more friendly to each other.
People hung their American flags proudly.
People wore American flag pins on their clothes and stuck American flag stickers on their cars and wherever they could.
We were UNITED.
If you ask yourself or someone else the names of the terrorists on September 11 could they name more than one?
I couldn't. That's how it should be.
While hearts still ache over the loss of that day the American way of life is as strong as ever.
I hope you are able to spend today with the ones you love reflecting on 9/11 and full of gratitude that you have today.
God Bless all of those who served and sacrificed on 9/11 and God Bless America.
