On this day 11 years ago, thousands of innocent lives were lost or changed forever. Hearts were broken, dreams were shattered and families torn apart. Yet through the darkness and devastation, an entire country united more than ever before and held hands while picking up the pieces. That day is and always will be engraved in my heart as a day of cataclysmic sorrow, but also the day that I learned to love my country more than I ever had before.
God Bless the USA, my home sweet home.
Let us never forget the victims of September 11th 2001. ♥
Every year I watch this video, and as I sob uncontrollably I am again reminded that tomorrow is not promised. And I am privileged, as are you, to be here now living a healthy, happy life.
Take this day to reflect on how lucky and blessed you are to wake up every morning and hold your loved ones tight. There are some who are not as fortunate.
Live each day as if it were your last.
