We Pause To Remember

We pause to remember the events that happened twenty years ago and the many heroes affected.

We pause to remember

On this twentieth anniversary of a dark day, we pause to remember the innocent victims who were going about their normal lives when murderers took away their future. We pause to remember the heroes who raced into burning buildings, escorted people to safety, and fought to take a plane back from those intent on causing more harm. We pause to remember the brave men and women who volunteered to go overseas to prevent evil-doers from coming here. We pause to remember our allies who raced to our aid and support. We pause to remember the families left behind to pick up the pieces. Tomorrow, we’ll be back with our normal fun and games, but, today, we pause to remember.

    It is so important to remember 9/11. When that horrible day happened, it made us become one. It did not matter your age, race, religion or political views, we united against a terrible enemy that took so many innocent lives here on our soil. People came together and helped one another, we spoke to strangers and we cried together for the lost lives. We need to remember that feeling of unity again. 9/11 taught us that we are united together – we need to remember that. I will never forget 9/11.

Halloween Costumes

October 31, 2014 |

We live on the top of a mountain at the end of a dirt road. We do not have trick-or-treaters show up at our house. Ever. Still, we do sometimes wonder what Halloween Costumes are appropriate for us.
