September 11, 2001. A day we will never forget.
I was in third grade when this disaster struck our nation. I remember being in utter shock and disbelief of the images I was seeing on the television. How could my home country be under attack?? What was going on? How could we protect ourselves? Even though I was young, I will never forget that tragic day, the emotions I felt but also the patriotism of the country.
I am so grateful for the men and women serving our country who are fighting to defend freedom and liberty. I can't imagine the sacrifice our troops go through on a daily basis, consistently dying to their desires to serve the needs of the country. They give so much more than we could ever dream. So men and women of all branches of the military, thank you for serving. Thank you for fighting. Thank you for standing firm in your convictions and striving to better society. I will forever remember that I have the freedoms I do because of you!
