Today is a day when our nation stops to reflect on the tragedy of 9/11. For many who watch the news what happened on that day and the aftermath is an abstract. It is pictures on the TV and on the news. But for others what happened that day is real, it is personal and they lost loved ones unexpectedly on that fateful September day.
Today I'm spending the day with my grandson who is named after the grandfather he will never know. One of thousands who have given their lives in service to our country to help keep us free. I know from reading hundreds of Active Rain blogs over the years that there are others who have lost loved ones both here and abroad. There are also husbands, wives, sons, daughters, grandchildren and more who continue to serve our country.
May this National Day of Remembrance embrace everyone near and far. May it be more than just one day that we stop and pause but one of 365 days of the year when we remember what makes this us say "I"m proud to be an American."
