Nine years later...
“Today, we gather to be reassured that God hears the lamenting and bitter weeping of Mother America because so many of her children are no more. Let us now seek that assurance in prayer for the healing of our grief stricken hearts, for the souls and sacred memory of those who have been lost. Let us also pray for divine wisdom as our leaders consider the necessary actions for national security, wisdom of the grace of God that as we act, we not become the evil we deplore.” - Rev. Nathan Baxter, Dean of Washington National Cathedral
I can't believe its been nine years.
I feel for the victims of this tragedy - and know that their families are reminded today of their losses.
On this the ninth anniversary of this great trragedy, let's also remember the heroes, their families and all their loved ones.
Their legacy lives on and they will always be remembered for their bravery.
Their collective courage and true heroism.
I will never forget this day for as long as I live.
Today, I am also reminded to give thanks that we live in this great country.
Let's pray for the departed.
Make it a dia of thankfulness.
