This last week has been a pretty great week. I swear everyday, I'll get the thought in my head like  "Oh I need to blog about this day!", and then I always forget to do so, and the thoughts of my day go away forever. That's why they tell you it's so important to journal. Well now days, it's important to blog.

Anyways, today was a pretty great day in my book. It was Sunday, which is always one of my favorite days of the week, but it was also the tenth anniversary of the attacks of September 11th, 2001. It was a day of remembrance and gratitude. As I looked back on my vivid memories of that day, I could not help but be overcome by emotion again. I felt severe sorrow for those that lost family members and loved ones, and I remembered the unity of our great country after that. I am truly grateful and proud to be an American. I'm grateful for those people who have sacrificed their lives to serve and protect our country, it is my hope that they will always be remembered, and never forgotten. I am continually grateful and appreciative of all of those service men and women who sacrifice so much to protect our freedom.

Let us never forget that our freedom is a blessing.
Let us never forget those who lost their lives for our safety.
Let us never forget the events of 9/11.

Today as I was driving home from church, this song came on the radio. Love it. 

I turned up the radio, and started to sing along. I came to a stop at a red light, and still singing along I turned to the car next to me to see the driver proudly singing along to the same song. It was a great moment.

I leave you on that note. God bless the U.S.A.
