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.
