Pause

I want to take a quick pause today to remember September 11, 2001. It was a day that our lives were changed. Maybe there wasn't a grave and evident change your life saw that day  -- but from the moment those planes crashed into the World Trade Towers in NYC, NY:  our safety and freedom was compromised.

Many lifes were lost that day. People who just going to work, going about their normal lives.

The question of "why" cannot be explained.

It's difficult for me to write about the event -- for there is so much that saddens me about 9/11/2001.

But what I can say is that my heart aches for everyone who's lives were drastically effected by this event. My heart feels honor for the hero's who put their own lives at risk in order to save lives. And my heart feels proud for the US military who have deployed to dangerous areas of the world in order to fight and protect the freedom.


God Bless America! :)

God Bless America, indeed. I will always remember that day, and time that followed. I was a junior in college and was getting breakfast when it happened. It was so surreal and confusing at the time. What a horrible day in our country's past.
