I couldn't help but spend my morning on Pinterest and Google searching 9/11... and the *chills* keep coming. I was reminded of a conversation I had with one of my clients a couple weeks ago. She told me that the younger generation, late elementary-early middle school, don't remember September 11, 2001 (how is that possible? Am I that old already?) Her nieces and nephews were visiting over 9/11 of last year, and they watched recaps of that horrific day. She said her niece stared at the screen and exclaimed in a hushed voice, "wow, this really did happen?!"
Oh, it happened! And I will never forget! But I will also never forget the way our country pulled together, united, and gave everything we could to stand stronger than ever! My heart bursts with pride each time I think of it. I am proud to be an American, I love this country and I am so thankful for those who fight for our freedom! I will never forget 9/11 and I will let the memories remind me in my weakest of moments, how strong we truly are!
