Thank you Andrea, wonderful post

I still cry every time I hear that song, too. Seven years, and yet I remember 9/11 like it was yesterday. We will never forget.

Thank you for such an important and beautiful reminder. 9/11 will never be just another day for most Americans who are old enough to remember it. I can recall my mom and a childhood teacher ( Sr. Xavier) discussing in front of me that each remembered exactly where they were and what they were doing when WWII broke and when JFK was shot. I couldn’t relate then - until the terrorist attacks of September 11. Now, I speak with Americans and foreigners alike, and they vividly recall that day as if it were yesterday. It’s humbling to think how important America is and how incredibly fortunate we are! Thanks for writing out that song; it’s one of my favorites! I’m sure I’ll hear it a lot today.

I've never heard that song before, and am tearing up just writing this. Thank you for sharing!

Thank you for your September 11th posting. I cried my eyes out this morning, as I have done many times in the past, as I sat in my NY home and watched on television as the names of those who perished were read, including people that I knew. God bless the USA and may we always remember what God has given us. Joanne

I too burst into tears when I hear this song. What a great tribute to all of those effected by that day (and I think that was just about all of us). May we always be thankful for what we have... especially our freedom.

Our country will never forget this horrible event. It was the day that will forever be burned in my mind as they day we were so vulnerable--so exposed. I never imagined something like that could happen to US--it was horrifying. My heart goes out to the families and friends that lost someone special.

I still cry every year on this day. While I did not lose anyone dear to me, my husband was on an airplane at the same time this was happening. It was one of the scariest days of my life - to not hear his voice or know if where his plane was for two hours was frightening. It doesn't seem like a long time but if felt like it was. Thank you for remembering all of the families and heros that day - mine was Spencer Bedard. He was one of my husband's co-workers (we were a Delta family) who was able to confirm my husband had safely landed in Jacksonville. This evening we went to see the Atlanta Braves play baseball. With the salute to all of the emergency response professionals and our military, it was the best way I could think of to end this day. My littlest one said it was the best ball game she had ever been to. I was pregnant with her one month after the towers fell. It is funny how life comes full circle in ways you don't expect. Thanks Andrea

So sad Andrea!!
I was thinking about it all day yesterday!!
Can't believe 7 years have gone by in a flash.
Have a nice weekend,

Thanks so much for this post! My dh loves to make patriotic cd's for family and friends, and this will definitely be a song we add!
Blessings to all,
