This time, 1 year ago, wives were holding there husbands, and husbands holding there wives. Children were fast asleep, for they had to get up early to kiss their mommy or daddy goodbye, some were even going to fly in an airplane, and they were excited. Families were going to get to see loved ones, who would be on their way home in a matter of hours to see them. Some would be going to work in a little while. They would get up, and a loved one gaze into their eyes and tell them to have a nice day, and that they would see them later. While some were expecting to put out fires, and catch criminals, they were just doing their jobs, as they did everyday.
But little did anybody know, that in a short time they would be gone. Families broken, parents and children lost, and heroes made of those whom most of us took for granted. We take for granted, not only those whom are close to us, but those in which put their lives on the line for us. Most don’t realize, that everyday is a gift, and that those whom we love, could be gone tommorow. When you tell someone you’ll see them later, you don’t know if there will be a later. The only thing for certain, is now, the moment in which you can express your feeling to those whom are dear to you. Do not put it off, because you might not ever have that moment again.
I think the only thing I can say, that would even come close to expressing my feelings to the heroes around the world is… THANK YOU.
This not only to the firefirghtes, police, ems, and courageous citizens, whose selfless acts had saved the lives of others, at the expense of their own, but to those all around the world who helped. The countless countries and cititzens who prayed and donated to help those affected. The military personell from all countries who work and risk their lives everyday to bring us all freedom. There is nothing we could say, to truly express how important they are to us.
We will not forget
In remembrance of those lost on September 11, 2001
