Today, 16 years ago, USA changed in ways none of us could have ever imagined. Post-September 11, many people decided to give of themselves and become something bigger. These people made the ultimate sacrifice (remember last entry I said “sacrifice = love”) and enlisted in the armed services and decided to fight for the freedom that Americans value so much. We have many freedoms here and if it wasn’t for all these brave men and women, we wouldn’t have many freedoms left.
I thank all of them for their service and sacrifice. Some lost more than they probably thought they would; maybe the lost a limb or sight. Maybe, sadly, some lost their friends or loved ones. All in all, these brave men and women fought because they love(d) this great nation of ours and are willing to do whatever it takes to prove that we are united in love, freedom, and will not give in to terrorists, threats, or violence of any kind!
As cliché as it is, “united we stand; divided we fall!” We are here to help each other no matter the cost or struggles. We will fight for what is right!
Thank you everyone and yes, God bless the USA! ❤
Love and prayers, as always! ❤
