In the last 11 years...

This morning I listened to audio clips of September 11, 2001.  My heart was touched.

In the last 11 years I have...

Graduated high school
Gotten married
Survived my husband's deployment to Iraq
Become a Mom and an Aunt
Gotten involved in Personhood
Started this blog with the help of CLUCWG Ministries
Become a board member of American Soldier Inc.

September 11th was supposed to crush the American spirit, but though we grieve...we live.  We live to show that America will not give up!  We will not be defeated!  America is an idea.  America was built with the guidance of Divine Providence and "If God be for us, who can be against us?"  May we return to Him today.

How have you lived your life in the last 11 years?  What goals have you set for the next 11?  Today...we live.  Comment below with how your life has changed since September 11, 2001.

Here's a poem I wrote 11 years ago for school:

America United Through Terrorist Attacks

Brutally attacked on that bright fresh day
Tears streaming down Lady Liberty’s face
Time stood still, the clocks stopped running
We sat in silence watching scared people running
Calling each other, we’ve all heard the news
About the planes masters of terror had used
Shock, fear, and anger filling the air
Even heathens fall to prayer
Fall to our knees asking God for his mercy
No longer yelling, swearing, and cursing
Watching buildings imploding down
Life’s routine hitting hard ground
Can’t take our eyes from television screens
Now understanding what true terror means
Shock becomes fear, fear becomes anger,
From anger flows decision, we will now face the danger
We stand together, United, Strong
Thinking we’d scatter was terribly wrong
We will seek justice, they cannot hide
We will not forget the ones who died
Side by side past wars we’ve fought
Again united American Patriot
