We Will Never Forget

It is 9/11 a day when we all remember what we were doing when we heard the horrific news. I had just gotten up and was going to get my coffee and my husband said a plane had flown into the Trade World Center...I sat down and watched with great sadness and then fear at what unfolded....we were being attacked!!!  As time has passed I did not think of this tragedy as much and so when September 11th comes around it is always a time of reflection and prayer.  I will never forget all those innocent people who were murdered and the families forever that were changed.  May God bless us, strengthen and comfort us!!

I shared this beautiful video on my Facebook page and just had to post it here too.
