September 11th

I can't let this day go by without writing a few words about all of the innocent Americans who were killed seven years ago today.  Amidst all the loss, I am always reminded of the incredible courage and selflessness exhibited by so many people who reached out to help one another when their own lives were at stake, their own hearts broken. Like December 7, 1941 (the bombing of Pearl Harbor), the day of September 11, 2001 will "live in infamy"... but it will also live in unity and grace. The outpouring of love among the citizens of our country was a testimony to all that is American, and the bravery of heroes like the New York firefighters and police, the passengers of United flight 93, and just ordinary men and woman comforting each other on the streets was no less than a triumph of the human spirit.

We have much to be proud of as Americans. May we always strive to honor our dead by living up to our privileges as citizens of this magnificent and resilient country.

What a day that was. I won't ever forget that Andrew was just 3 months old when that happend and I was scared to think what kind of world he would have to grow up in. It's amazing that the times has gone by so fast.
