9-11-2001 We Will Never Forget

After sixteen years, it is still hard to believe this horrible day happened.
So many lives lost, so many families ripped apart at the seams.
It just seems so unreal. But sadly, it is real and WE WILL NEVER FORGET

A sad day for America
As rejoicing rang from hell,
Awakening a mighty giant
On the day the towers fell.

Our hearts were saddened
As we watched this vicious act unfold,
As innocence met a fiery death
And seeds of war were sowed.

Shouts rang out from the middle east
That Allah has done his good
But no god joys in faultless deaths
Through certain cowards could.

America just sort of glides along,
But don’t step on her toes …
For her belief in right and justice
Will stomp out freedom’s foes.

Memorial Day 2017


“Today is the day we put aside to remember fallen heroes and to pray that no heroes will ever have to die for us again. It’s a day of thanks for the valor of others, a day to remember the splendor of America and those of her children who rest in this cemetery and others. It’s a day to be with the family and remember.” ~Ronald Reagan


Memorial Day is not the first day of summer. Memorial Day does not mean a weekend filled with BBQ’s and parties.  Memorial Day is the time to pay homage to the men and women who died while serving our country.  Memorial Day is a day to honor those who died to give us our freedom.
