If you want funny you won't find it here today
because I am remembering the
911 tragedy that touched all our lives.
I think every single one of us remembers where
we were the moment we heard about what
had happened in NYC at
The World Trade Center.
We were enjoying the last few days of summer
and living in a house we had built on the
Ahnapee River in Algoma, Wisconsin.
I was on my way to Green Bay and
stopped at McDonalds to get a
cup of coffee.
Did you hear? asked the server
with a horror stricken look on her face.
She then proceeded to tell me what she knew.
I turned around and went home and stayed
glued to the TV for three days straight.
watching the tragedy unfold.
The tragedy united us in a way nothing else
We were proud to stand together,
man to man, woman to woman,
race to race and
citizen to citizen.
We were proud to
declare that we were one.country
indivisible by ANY terrorist attack.
Let us remember that today.
Let us remember those 2,996 people
that lost their lives needlessly that day.
Salute a solider.
Shake a policeman's hand.
Thank a firefighter.
Say a prayer for all those still grieving.
Let us stand united yesterday
today and tomorrow.
I am proud to be an American
God bless us all.
