Blue Monday & Ruby Tuesday - Patriot Day

This weekend was emotionally charged. I attended as a reporter four memorials and while they weren't sad moments they were unbelievably powerful. After 10 years we have not forgotten and the people most people are more than willing to tell their story, talk about the people they have lost and remember that there are still people out there that want to cause us harm because of who we are. Being part of these memorials offered me a renewed feeling of patriotism. I remember after the attacks feeling great pride as an American and while that feeling was never dormant it has been awakened to it's fullness.

I pray that 9/11 continues to be honored and that America never forgets the solidarity we felt that day. We were all Americans. We had all lost someone even if it was indirectly. Honoring America and the people that died and survived that day is important so that we always remember to never underestimate how much we have to stick together. How important it is to tell the people you love that you love them and how quickly things can change. In the blink of an eye, our world changed and will never be the same.
