I too remember

I went to the "World Trade Center" movie at the theatre yesterday afternoon with my husband and daughter. Two minutes into the movie I began to cry. I didn't stop. seriously. The magnitude of the collateral damage caused on that day five years ago continues to echo through the hearts of all Americans.

Many bloggers today are remembering and posting tributes to those who died. I join them in saluting all the Americans who died at the World Trade Center, as well as those who continue even today to fight for the freedom we have in America. I don't take lightly the sacrifices many American men and women have made on my behalf, and for my family.

I also salute those firefighters, police, public servants, who do their jobs everyday for us in America. The people that put their lives on the line because they value life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

God Bless them all.

Thanks for stopping by today. It is such a great day for blog-surfing--so many people, just like you...have taken this day and honored those whose lives were lost on 9/11/01. I wasn't sure I would be able to effectively write a tribute for someone I did not know--but after doing just a little research, I began to grieve the loss of Sergeant Michael Curtin....he was an amazing person. There is great sadness on a day like today--but great joy in honoring the life, not death, of those whose lives were sacrificed on 9/11.
