In remembrance

This post is dedicated to that terrible day 10 years ago when terrorists brought senseless violence to American soil. When brave men and women lost their lives. When wives were left without their husbands, husbands without their wives, children without their parents, sisters without their brothers or brothers without their sisters, and parents were left to bury their children.

It’s dedicated to the rescuers who bravely dashed in to save who they could, help the injured and manage the situation. And for this work, some of them paid the ultimate price. But I’m sure if you could ask them about it, they would tell you it was worth it.

This is dedicated to the members of our military who bravely defend our country and continue to wage a war on terrorism. It’s dedicated to those many children born following the attacks who never knew their fathers and have grown up without them.

Most of all it’s dedicated to us as Americans, to our resilience, our will to survive and our desire to continue moving forward in spite of opposition. United we stand. Today that means remembering those who lost their lives 10 years ago through no fault of their own. May their families continue to feel the love and support we offer them 10 years after the terrible event.
