ONE NATION UNDER GOD.
Whether you believe in Him or not… He is there for all of us. We honor those that lost their lives seventeen years ago by remembering them.
I pray for families that lost love ones that fateful day. My hope is that your memories are ones of fondness, and that good memories will continue to erode the hurt and pain of that day.
We are grateful for all who continue to serve in our armed forces, the men and women who sacrifice to keep us safe.
My paternal grandfather served in the Spanish-American War, my father served in Vietnam, my father in law served in the Army, my husband served in the Army, our son now serves in the Marines, and our grandson plans to enlist in the Air Force upon graduation from college.
Freedom Is Not Free!
This Nation has it’s faults (as many nations do), but there is no other place I would want to live. Being an Army brat, and a military wife I have had to privilege of living in other countries. They each had their faults, along with their rich history, beautiful sites and citizens who were proud of their native land.
But there is no place on this earth that I would rather live. I long for the day that we as American’s can co-exist. It’s OK to have a difference of opinion, it’s OK to belong to different political parties, it’s OK that your skin color is different from mine…
IT’S NOT OK TO SPEW HATRED AND VIOLENCE SIMPLY BECAUSE WE ARE DIFFERENT!
So on this Tuesday, September 11, 2018 we as American’s pause to remember the fallen; we also remember those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice since 2001.
GREATER LOVE HAS NO MAN THAN THIS, THAT A MAN LAY DOWN HIS LIFE FOR HIS FRIENDS.
