Today, I am writing this post in honor of the fallen, and of course I am talking about 9/11. Where were you on that dreadful day? It’s hard to imagine that any human being could conceive of such an idea, and plan such cruelty against another, but when it comes to extremists, we can’t put ourselves in that mindset. It’s just something we cannot comprehend, especially when we as individuals do value human life.
There isn’t much to say other than that I am so grateful for my life, and knowing that my family is safe and sound. It’s hard to imagine what it would have been like to lose a close family member on that day, and the best I could do would be to empathize with others that did lose their loved ones.
There would so many people to name here, that it’s impossible and the list would be voluminous. On the other hand, if I were to sit and make a list of each and every thing that I am grateful for, I too would find that my list for that is voluminous and beyond comprehension. I don’t have to reflect on that day with a deep personal sadness, but yes, I do feel sad that we lost so many wonderful and faithful citizens in our beloved country.
There isn’t much that I could say in honor of the fallen, other than to thank them, and all of the first responders, as well as those that so faithfully served our country then and now. What could I say but thank you?
