September 11, 2011-we will NEVER forget

I was going to share my 9/11 story here today but after listening to the families reading the names of those lost, and feeling overwhelmed that it will take hours to get through all of the names, I have decided, instead to just say that my story is not important.

The stories that matter are those of the innocent people who were going about their day-at work, on the planes and those that rushed bravely into those burning buildings to try and save lives.  I want to know the stories of every single person that lost their lives that day.   Those are the stories that matter.  So I think that today I will spend my time reflecting in prayer and spending time trying to find those stories.

I am so proud to be an American.  I will never forget.  Ever.

May God Bless us all.

    • Thanks Steph! We were playing with his word cards and when we were doing the transportation ones it hit me…we had nearly all we needed to represent 9/11. Happy Birthday to you though! The day is always tinged with sadness (now) but three decades ago (let’s pretend it was only that long ago) you were born and THAT is worth celebrating!!! Love you!
