I try to write a factual history when I blog. Today I cannot give you statistics and facts. Because today is about what you feel as an AMERICAN. It is what you feel to live in the United States. It is about thankfulness for being born in the greatest country in this world. This day is for REMEMBRANCE for the simple people that became HEROES 13 years ago – 13 years that we have been remembering, honoring and continue to fight for our great Nation.
I remember every moment of the day of the attacks. I was at work and my girls were in school, 30 miles away. Can you tell me your reaction, thoughts and feelings? I bet you can remember every little thing you felt. How scared you were. How you just wanted to be with your family in that moment of crisis. As the day wore on and news came over the radio and television we saw our First Responders, our Firefighters, EMT’s and Police Departments do what they do best: come to the aid of those in need.
I am reiterating this oath so you may read what our forefathers gave us in the 1860‘s: I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.

Take some time, whether it be a time of silence, prayer, thanking someone that goes out in a uniform everyday or flying your flag. Honor Old Glory today! God Bless America. Noble eagle. Enduring freedom. Remember September 11, 2001.
