nine years.

i can’t believe it’s been nine years since we were a nation on our knees.  nine years.  it feels like yesterday, and it feels like it was something unreal at the same time. i will never forget the citizens whose lives were taken in those towers or the ones who stood up and gave their lives crashing a plane into a pennsylvania field.  i am eternally grateful for those firefighters whose lives were lost in an attempt to save others and for the men and women who spent months searching for lives and bodies.  i am also grateful for those overseas who are living out their appreciation by fighting to defend our freedom.  today, i remember and i am in awe of those who have sacrificed far greater things than i could ever imagine.
