I wasn’t sure if I was going to write a remembrance post for today, not because I didn’t want to honor the day but because I wasn’t sure what to say without it sounding trite…

So many people’s lives were forever changed on that day ~ lives were lost, people were injured, wars were fought…  There was just so much of everything that words almost fail me.  I think the best sentiment that I’ve heard all week was from a good friend of mine on Facebook who suggested that instead of reserving all of our love, patriotism and service to others to one day, perhaps, we should spread it throughout the year.  Live each day as if it may be our last.  Love our family and friends, tell them and show them every day.  Forgive those who’ve hurt us…  Extend a helping hand to those in need.  Check on elderly neighbors.  Thank a soldier or first responder and his or her family for their service.  These may seem like little things, but in the grand scheme of things, these small acts mean so much and serve to remind us of what a great country America really is.

So I leave you with this final thought, not just on today but every day, God bless you and God bless America…
