NEVER FORGET

Today marks the anniversary of one of the most horrendous acts on American soil. For many of us, our innocence was lost that day.

Truthfully, today will be a difficult day for many - including myself. No, I didn't know anyone who died that day, but I suffered along with those who lost a mom, a dad; a brother, a sister; a cousin; a grandparent; a neighbor; a friend. I grieved with the rest of my nation as the Towers Tumbled, the Pentagon fractured, and a Field smoldered. I gasped! I cried! I ached!

Today, I pause and I remember... and I pray!


When live knocks you on your knees you're in the perfect position to pray.







The sentiment inside simply says thinking of you





NEVER FORGET!
