Nothing much to add

What could I possibly say about the tenth anniversary of America’s darkest day that hasn’t been said already by folks much more eloquent than me?

Absolutely nothing.

Except to add to the chorus of Americans who wish to recognize the bravery and the sacrifices of so many on that day and in the days, months and years that followed.

To the first responders and to the rescue and recovery personnel, many of whom lost their lives that day. Many who fight for their lives today against the poisons they were exposed to in the burning wreckage.

We remember and are grateful.

To the passengers and crew members of Flight 93 who chose to take the plane down in a Pennsylvania field, giving their own lives in order to save many more.

We remember and are grateful.

To the men and women of our armed services who volunteered to fight for our freedom against an enemy unlike any we had faced before the day America was attacked on 9/11.

We remember and are grateful.

To the families directly affected by the events of 9/11.

To the fallen heroes who were not publicly recognized in official ceremonies.

We remember and are grateful.

Thank you.

    I was amazed at the stories of those who were late for work that day because they picked up donuts, or their car would not start and many other happenings. And those who made it down the stairs and also helped others escape. Sad was the fact that many did not survive and we do remember those also. Then we had the heros including retriever dogs who searched and unearthed some saving them. The last ten years we have experienced many other tragedies. What is happening to our world? Is Jesus getting ready to return? I do wonder.
