We will remember

The night of September 10th, I am always struck with the same thought - so many people went to bed on 9/10/2001 never knowing that when they awoke, their lives would be changed forever. I think about all the people who went to work, school, traveled, or stayed home and never knew that whatever goodbye they said, that it would be their last.  I keep that thought with me. It isn't that I live in fear but I am cognizant that anything can happen at anytime and no one is guaranteed a tomorrow. I treasure every day I am given. My older daughter who serves in the Marine Corps and those who serve with her are all painfully aware of the dangers we face. Our world was forever changed 14 years ago.
"Time is passing. Yet, for the United States of America, there will be no forgetting September the 11th. We will remember every rescuer who died in honor. We will remember every family that lives in grief. We will remember the fire and ash, the last phone calls, the funerals of the children.
- President George W. Bush
