10 Years since 9/11

tomorrow Sunday September 11 2011 it will be 10 yrs since we lost so many lives, and so many more were effected for a lifetime. I personally had a loved one in an airplane that morning. It was a scary time for everyone because we had no idea what exactly was going on or how to react.

It wasnt until those terrorist groups took responsibility that we knew what was going on. It has changed how we do everything from concerts, shopping to national defense.

Did we allow these people to bully us into a war we have the hardest time winning?




No matter what you think about our National Defense or the wars in the Middle East we have men and wemon taking the fight to the enemy and we need to support them. There are local events scheduled and I would suggest we take the time to attend and keep the importance of this day in mind.
