we will always remember <3

September 11th, 2001
A day that changed our country
and it's people
forever.

"Thousands of lives were suddenly ended by evil, despicable acts of terror. The pictures of airplanes flying into buildings, fires burning, huge structures collapsing, have filled us with disbelief, terrible sadness and a quiet, unyielding anger."
-George W. Bush
"War has been waged against us by stealth and deceit and murder. This nation is peaceful, but fierce when stirred to anger. This conflict was begun on the timing and terms of others. It will end in a way, and at an hour, of our choosing."
-George W. Bush, Speech at National Cathedral, September 14, 2001

I live in Canada but the horror everyone I knew felt wouldn't come close to anyone who lost a loved one in that tragedy. We all need to be thankful for the people we surround ourselves with because life can be unexpectedly short.

A tragic anniversary; one that I and so many others will never forget.
God Bless all the men and women that protect us and how blessed we are to live in this amazing country!

I respect your post today and do feel that war was declared that fateful day.

It would be an answer to prayers across the country if Americans could remember we did not declare war, our enemies did.

I pray for out country to be unified because divided we fall.

Blessings...Jeanne
