A day I'll never forget.

I will never forget they day I heard on the radio at work that one of our nation's landmarks had been destroyed along with thousands of lives. I will never forget the fear in my heart when I couldn't reach my fiance who worked at a nuclear power plant, later to find he had been told to stay put for tightening of security for a possible terroristic attack on them. I will never forget shaking in my seat, wondering if this was the start of the 3rd World War. I will never forget the endless tears my family shed that day, wondering what and who was next. Tears shed for all those who will never see their loved ones again. Distant neighbors and heroes running to their rescue. Tears shed today in remembrance of all those things and more. I will never forget the weeks and years after, still wondering what really happened and why.

Still not sure what I'm writing about? "Have you forgotten?"

I will never forget my patrotism for our country, THE USA, and those who serve it well.
I thank God so many lived to see another day.
God Bless America.
God Bless all those united with us in prayer.
God Bless all countries terrorized by others.

God Bless!

Now go to this link and try to tell me that these soldiers don't want to be where they are... I don't think so. If they enlisted, they know what they're getting themselves into, most enlisted for that very reason. Ho-rah for the US Military and all those who fight for freedom.
