It’s unimaginable that it’s been 18 years since that painful day on a beautiful September morning. I still think about it every damn day of my life. I think of all that happened then, and has happened since. I worry about my family, and our country. I do my best to honor the men and women who serve our country every day. I have 2 sons serving the FDNY & NYPD each day. Putting themselves at risk for others each day. I hope for them to come home each day to their family or loved ones. I worry about our other family members who serve in the FDNY, NYPD or other county services, and pray they return safely home to their families each day. We are very PROUD of them all, their sacrifices, and the sacrifices of their fellow brothers and sisters. I hope for a better future, because we don’t have tomorrow as a given. Time is passing, loved ones are leaving us. Children are growing up without our love, and our hurt heightens daily. Sadly, it does not get better as time goes on.
I remember coming home that evening, and visiting with my father and mother. When he answered the door I cried like a baby. We talked, we cried, and one positive thing came from that moment. Ever since that day, I kissed my father hello, and goodbye each and every time I saw him. I began kissing all of my sons hello and goodbye, and then every male in the family started kissing each other when we met or left. It continues today, and it gives me a warm feeling. My father left us 3 weeks ago, and I will forever miss those kisses. my hope is to honor him for the rest of my life, and continue to be the man he hoped I would become.
Life is short, family is important and our country will Never Forget … And with that said, I can’t help but ask that you take a few minutes and follow this link to a special tribute page, w/audio, entitled simply – Remember The Blood of Heroes – it is painful to watch, but important to remember that day. God Bless America !!! 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸
