As I sit and think back to that day, that day of terror, I am reminded of what I felt that day.
It started out as a day as a new mom. Coy was 2 weeks old, and I was preparing to take him in for his 2 week checkup. We were all set to go, when the phone rang. It was Vinton asking if I'd had the TV on. Being me, I asked, "Why, am I on it?" I will remember that comment forever. No, it wasn't me, it was our country, The Land of the Free, under attack. It was a Nation wondering WHY? Why us? How could someone take so many lives, innocent lives from us!? There were so many people that day that lost their lives on that tragic day. So many people lost their loved ones.
It was on that day that changed America. We came back together as a country. Helping one another, asking if one another needed a helping hand. The way our country should be. The Land of the Free. The Land where my children can go outside and play in the dirt, ride their bikes, play with their friends and not be scared.
Take time today and thank our Military personnel, past and present. They are fighting not only for their lives, their freedom, but for ours too. Be thankful that we are free. We live in the Land of the Free.
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union...
