My husband absolutely amazes me. Every times he sees a person in a military uniform he goes out of his way to shake their hand and thank them for their service. We went to the Lancaster fair Monday and it took a little while to get past the Army exhibit. I said to him that if he were younger he'd probably be over there now. He said he definitely would. I replied that I'm glad he's not younger.
But he's so right. These are ordinary people, not any different from you and me. They may be firemen, policemen or rescue workers who sacrificed so much in the wake of the 9/11 attacks, or the passengers on Flight 93 who brought that plane down in a field, stopping the terrorists from reaching their intended target, or members of our military who fight each day to preserve our freedoms. Whoever they are, wherever they're found, whatever they're doing, God bless them and their families for their service and sacrifice.
Today is the 8th anniversary of the 9/11/2001 terrorist attacks. Let's all remember the heroes of the day, and of every day. Make sure to fly an American flag to show your support.
