Remember Today

I struggled with what to say on today's anniversary. 9/11. A date that is forever imprinted in our hearts and minds. A date that not only scarred Americans but human beings around the world.

I remember exactly where I was when I heard the news on the radio about the attacks. I remember wondering if there would be more attacks around our country, if schools and daycare centers would be next, because how cruel would it be to attack our most innocent of Americans.

I wish we could be a more tolerant species. Human beings are so violent. Everywhere across the globe you hear of violence. We are not wild animals, so why do we consistently have people among us who choose to live like them. I could go on and on in a discussion that would lead us nowhere. So, I'll stop.

But I want to lead you to a couple of wonderful posts, one written by JennyMac over at Let's Have a Cocktail, and one written by Hubby at ITS Tactical. They are both very poignant and reflective.

And, at some point today I hope that you will bow your head in remembrance of those who perished, those who saved lives, and those who honor the tragedy that occurred eight years ago. May we continue to fight the hatred that feeds terrorism.
