Today is September 11, 2013
and I can't help but
September 11, 2001
I know all of us can remember that day vividly as if it were only yesterday. I still can feel the unbelievable horror and pain. For me, I felt and learned that evil had come to knock at our doorstep. Prior to that morning, I had never experienced disbelief, mixed with sorrow and fear.
Like all of us though ... even with all the tears I shed that morning when the first plane hit. I chose during that first week following September 11th, to reach for something far more meaningful. I found out what is really means to be an American. Our country became one, whole in every way. We watched courage daily from our fellow Americans and we came together "AS ONE PEOPLE" which is truly what I pray for today. I think we have forgotten.
Our country is very divided right now; all of us are fearful and weary of war as a community and Nation. My prayers go out to our President, Congress and military because no matter what. Our world needs healing. No matter what happens in Syria ... our world is effected. Not just America or Europe or Russia or China or North Korea or the Middle East ... this is the only planet we have. I just pray with all my heart that decisions are made to protect our humanity.
My freebie today is dedicated to that day, the memories it holds for all of us and our endurance as a Nation to stay STRONG and UNITED forever.
