We Remember Our Military on 9-11




We will remember 9-11 and pay tribute today to those people that experienced the horror of the terrorist acts up close and personal seven years ago. Their lives were changed for ever. We still feel the ache in our hearts for the husbands and wives, mothers and fathers, and children who lost loved ones to this great national tragedy.


It is only fitting that we show tribute as well to those brave men and women that serve us in our military. Some paid the ultimate price with their lives. Some were there when the first of our troops set foot on the foreign soils of Iraq and Afghanistan. Some have returned home having served their time, only to be sent back again and again.


We will never hear them complain, because this is what they do. They serve their country and go where they are told to go. They fight whoever they are told to fight. They do this not only to protect their families, but to protect mine and yours as well. People they have never known, and probably never will. They do this because they are Americans called to serve and protect our country.



Not matter what you think about our troops being there. One thing I have heard over and over again from people that have taken a stand on our presence in the middle east. They all support our troops and pray for their safe return to their families and homes.

As we bow our heads today to offer a prayer for all the lives that the terrorist acts of September 11, 2001 have effected. While we offer a moment of silence to those who have lost their lives on that day and since. Please remember the families of our military that struggle and wait and pray for the safe return of their loved ones.

Please take this candle and place it on the side bar of your blog to show your support to our military men and women. May the light of the candles be bright enough to guide them safely home. Please countinue to read the next post, as it recounts the story of the day a sleeping giant was awakened. Wishing you all a day filled with blessings.

Thank you for the beautiful and touching tribute-as the wife of a National Guard soldier that served in Iraq and came home wounded-we thank you for caring and understanding the reason they are over there and it is not all in vain. We must never forget the reason-9/11.

Both your posts are a beautiful tribute to that tragic day 7 years ago. I don't think any of us will ever forget where we were or what we were doing when the news first came out. Hard to believe it's been 7 years ago already, it's still so fresh in our hearts and minds. xoxo

It is nice to know that just about everyone in the country realizes that regardless of how we might feel about being in Iraq, the brave men and women in our military deserve our gratitude and respect. We must never forget that! This is a very nice tribute, Jo. Thank you for posting it.
