Remembering 9/11/01

American Flag

Taking a break from natural hair today and remembering those who lost their lives on that fateful day 9/11/01.  I took this photo at the Vietnam Memorial in Jacksonville, NC Lejeune Memorial Gardens ,where they have the names of countless soldiers who died in that war inscribed on glass panels.  Just before you walk into the memorial there is a piece of a beam from one of the twin towers that was sent to those that volunteered their time and service to help the victims of 9/11.  Visiting this memorial you will see lots of different memorials to different men and women who so bravely have given their lives for this country.  I thought to myself, I really need to be thankful for my life and space in this country.  Each day I say a prayer of thanks to God for blessing those people to be so brave that we may be able to enjoy our freedom.  So many died on 9/11 so let us not let their deaths be in vain, we can take time out each day to give a moment of silence, do something nice for someone else and be thankful for the things we sometimes take for granted.  I salute the men women and children who died and who gave their lives trying to save lives, I truly honor them, our true heroes.
