September 11th, 2011 - 10 years later



September 11th, 2001 will go down in history as the day .  Though the physical scars have healed, the emotional scars will live on for many years to come.  Every American was touched by the events of that day, whether personally or not, and we will never forget those that lost their lives.  Many ordinary citizens became heroes that day and we will be forever thankful for their courage.  The heroic members of the NYPD, FDNY, EMT members and the troops sent out to defend our freedom, make us all proud to be American.


Every time I hear the song "God Bless the USA" I get goosebumps.  It is one of the most touching and beautiful songs I've ever heard.  It's one of those songs you just have to sing along with!  I feel that this is the perfect song to describe how strong and patriotic Americans are and how, no matter what happens, we will endure and survive - stronger than ever!


Please take just a moment today to remember those who have lost their lives to defend the freedoms many so often take advantage of.

  1. God Bless the USA has been "my" song to sing at karaoke ever since the first time I sang. That was years before 9-11, and it has always given me goosebumps. I can't get through the song now without tears in my eyes. Beautiful post.
