remember september 11th


so today was september 11th. well it was about 3 hours ago or so.
i woke up this morning started getting ready for work. im the type of person who has to have the radio or the t.v or something on.. i hate silence. well i was listening to the radio and i 9/11 tribute came on. i started crying even now just thinking about it makes me sad. you hear the voices of the 911 calls and the cries of the families whos loved ones are trapped in the buildings. I couldn't even imagine what it would be like to feel there was no way out. thinking i'm going to die and there's nothing i can do about it. all i do now is sit and wait. i can't imagine the goodbyes that were said. I remember sitting there watching the news while i was at school acheing for the people who were directly being affected by this horrific event. i still feel for them. all the widows who had to raise fatherless children or vice versa. the uncles, dads, grandfathers, grandmothers, daughters, sons, ect... that could have been one of yours. i can say September 11th will always be a day that i will remember in great detail. it was a day my country cried. we became united for a short period of time and we felt for our neighbors. we made every effort to tell our loved ones how we felt about them.
and yes i can say i get furious when people bash on our mititary. these are men and women who put their lives on the line to try and make sure that an event like this wont take place again. they make sure you have the right to hate them; for protecting your freedom to degrade them. i am so proud of the many people that i know who have chosen to serve our country. and i am proud of those whom i dont know. you are all my heros and i am greatful for all that you do even when it seems the world is turing its back on you.

Lower heat to medium and add in oats, stirring frequently so that they don’t stick to the bottom of the pan. Once oats are softened and have absorbed most of the water, add in the milk and stir to combine well.

Love this! written by Tanya Amidei

Public Declaration; I NO longer believe in falling/being in love: As I was walking to work this morning I was convicted and reproved for ignorantly believing that I could "fall in love". Love is NOT something you fall into; this pulsing truth wouldn't silence. Now, you can imagine how I felt as the conviction in my heart arose; slightly defensive because certainly I've been defining love properly, right? So, I decided that it was my responsibility to pierce into the Word of my Father, and search to see if this concept of "falling in love" or "being in love" is something that I should indeed attach my life to. Now, it was to my surprise that this concept of emotional intoxication that motivates the lips to part and the tongue to say "I'm in love" is NOWHERE to be found! In fact, as I dug into research I found that this concept; the one I've been guilty of co-signing my name to, is nothing more than lust. Lust is built on what the …
