God Bless The USA

9-11...comes every year and I don't know what to say. Something should be said but are there REALLY any words to express what happened on that horrible day in our history? My 93 year old grandmother says she can only compare the events of 9-11 to the attack on Pearl Harbor. In her mind at least all these years later, 9-11 was much more horrific for the United States. I can only imagine.

Here and now what do you say to the family members who have this day each year to serve as yet another reminder other than the one they live with daily, that their loved ones are never ever coming home to them? What do you say to the family who has lost a daughter, son, wife, mother, father, son, brother, sister in defense of our country? Thank you and may God bless.

9/11 by the Numbers

"The initial numbers are indelible: 8:46 a.m. and 9:02 a.m. Time the burning towers stood: 56 minutes and 102 minutes. Time they took to fall: 12 seconds. From there, they ripple out."
Darryl Worley - Have You Forgotten
