American spirit, lest we forget

Last Update: September 11, 2021

Sorry to remind people of this day 20 years ago, but it needs to stay in our minds. Two songs come to mind this time every year for me, not only as a veteran, but as an American. They are Lee Greenwood's original,"God Bless the USA" also Toby Keith's "Courtesy of the Red,White and Blue". The main reason this is so near and dear to me is that I lost a friend there that morning and I also was supposed to be in the North Tower that morniing for a delivery at 8:30am. Thanks to all for letting me share this, hopefully without being banned.

Lee Greenwood's is on my top 10 of all time favorites!!
While, traveling when God Bless the USA comes on the radio, ...one year I was traveling from Montana to San Diego on July 4th weekend and each time I'd sing my heart out and often tears of appreciation arose.
Love this country!! If one doesn't try leaving for awhile!!
Thanks, Joe!

I thought this was a beautiful historical post! Any act of violence anywhere in the world is tragic. The only way to see it in maybe a lighter kind of way is that if we all agreed on everything and all believed the same way, there would be no reason for growth and expansion. Thank you for your service! Have a wonderful week!

I remember it like it was yesterday. I agree, it needs to stay in our minds. So thank you for sharing, Joe. And thank you for your service.

My husband called me on the phone that morning and told me to turn on the TV. I was in shock. How could this happen? But it did and we will never forget the ones who died and the brave men and women who ran to help.

It was and always will be, along with the death of my Dad, the most upsetting day of my life.
The people who ran towards the disaster to help those in need are the absolute heroes and heroines that should always be remembered as the greatest thing about mankind during one of its darkest and most despicable tests.
To all of those who passed that day, you are loved forever by the rest of the world's decent and good and always will be.

I know exactly where I was that day and like many millions of others, I watched it all unfold on the t.v. My husband and I have visited the 911 memorial and spent time at the reflecting pools to pay our respects to all those that were taken away. It is certainly a day I will never forget.
