Do you remember where you were?
We all do.
The knife still goes through my heart when I see the images on TV or the internet.
The lives lost may not have been in my family, but they are burned in my heart none the less. As I’m sure they are yours as well.
As Toby Keith’s song “Courtesy of the Red White and Blue” said shortly after that tragic day, “We got sucker-punched from somewhere in the back.”
How can these people hate us so badly they want to kill you and me? Why? Just because they believe differently than we do? How can they hate freedom so badly they are willing to die to stop us from having it?
But I wonder more about the people here that don’t feel Patriotism every 9/11. How could they not be angry? How can they not care?
I don’t like war. I hate the thought of our loved ones having to go to war.
I have a Great Nephew that is getting ready to go into the military as I write this. And it makes me sad to my very core. He is a wonderful, talented, kind, gentle soul. But he is following in his Grandfather and his Fathers foot-steps and going to defend our country.
To defend yours, and my, freedom from these mad-men.
And that breaks my heart.
But makes me incredibly proud at the same time
Am I the only person that still cries on 9/11?
Am I the only person that is still heartbroken?
Please share how you feel today and tell me if I’m crazy for still being so incredibly hurt.
God Bless America!
