Proud to be an American

Listened to the Alan Jackson song,’Where were you when the world stopped turning’ on the radio with my son Friday morning. We were on the way to school and we both got teary-eyed. That day, that unforgettable day that has forever changed us as a country, as a people. I remember watching the coverage feeling so small, and far away from it all and yet….so very close. I’m still in disbelief of how people could do that to other people. Nothing makes my heart sadder. It’s amazing me though the bounce back, the unity that came from that horrible tragedy. The way we didn’t just shrink back or cower in a corner. We were mourning, we were devastated, in a state of shock. But we the people, the people of America rose from the ashes, to proclaim that we are strong, we will not hide. So in awe of all the charities that were founded by those who lost loved ones. How American is that…turning grief into triumph. We honor and remember those who died, those who gave their lives to save others, those who lost wives, husbands, sons, daughters, mothers, fathers, friends. We carry on, we rebuild, we hold our loved ones a little tighter. We will let go of the petty disagreements as we remember 9/11/01 and remember what really matters. GOD bless the USA!!
