Remembering...

Today marks seven years since our country was broken by the terrorist attacks. Since I began on this journey of grief, I have become much more aware of how many people are actually grieving each and every day. My own suffering is certainly not unique. We all suffer. Today I am reminded of how many families are still grieving the loss of loved ones who were in the Trade Center Buildings, a plane or nearby.

Lets all take a moment today to remember the almost 3 thousand lives that were lost seven years ago, and join me in prayer for the families of those victims.

Lets also take a moment to remember and pray for the brave men and women who put themselves in harms way in our Armed Forces to make us safe from further attacks.

I also must say that in reflecting on all of this today I am brought to my knees in gratitude. I am so thankful to be an American citizen. I am thankful that I live in a country where there are people who are willing to fight for our safety. We are so blessed!

I am so thankful to be and American and am definitely remembering those who lost their lives. I saw so many more American flags than usual out today as I drove home from dropping my son off at school and it brought tears to my eyes thinking about how thankful I am to live in this great country and how thankful I am to those who serve it!

Kristy,
I also felt the same way yesterday...I certainly have not forgotten 9/11 but it's very different for me this year as I can relate in a more tangible way to the grief all of those precious people who lost loved ones.
I continue to think of you so much and pray every day for you and your sweet family.
Love you friend,
Kim
