9/11

Standard

On this most auspicious day, I suspect people remember just where they were when they first heard the news of the attack. I know I do. I also remember the ensuing events, and the wars which we fought.

On this day, I honor the memory of all the people lost on that day and the service men and women who gave their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan.

As a military mother, I deplore all wars and yearn for peace, but recognize that the world is not perfect and we need our sons and daughters, sisters and brothers, to protect our freedoms and country which is “the shining city on the hill.”

  1. I echo what Silvia says. Well said.

    9/11 was something felt across the globe. Here in the UK I remember that day at work, we were huddled around a small TV in our post room watching the events unfold. Still vivid memories to this day.
