September 11th, We remember....

If you ask anyone over the age of 25 where they were on September 11, 2001 they will tell you a story…with the large.jpgclear recall of yesterday.  They remember….

Today, on September 11th, my son Alex turns 18.  He was 4 then.  I remember how completely consumed this country and the entire world was as we tried to wrap our head around what had happened that day and why.  I remember… 

Alex was waiting when I got home eyes bright with wonder and excitement, a little boy on his birthday.  My thoughts turned as I focused on him, and my priorities shifted to that little boy.  With heavy hearts from the day, we celebrated his birthday-sheltered for a moment in time.  Still, we remembered… 

We remember those taken from us that day, we pray for their families and friends.  We draw strength from their bravery, courage from their valor, and will never forget what they gave.  We thank first responders as the serve to protect, and put our lives first every day.  We thank those who fight for the freedoms we share and pray for lives lost in that fight.   And…we remember…
