When I awoke this morning and thought about what today signifies, it's still so hard to believe that 7 years ago today, our Nation was attacked by terrorists. Today is Patriot's Day or the anniversary of 9/11...however you like to remember it!

It's a sad day of rememberance for Americans and yet a somewhat triumphant day when you think about what lengths our Nation has exhausted since that fateful day in order to make us a safer & more secure country.

So in thinking about what today means to me, I think about where I was that day. I was working for a local sawmill and remember someone coming into the office from our yard to tell us to turn our television on. Work was immediately halted. The scenes were surreal and we all stood in disbelief as we watched our country being attacked.

Each one of us has a connection to that day in someway, because we each have our own story to tell. And each one of us will forever remember this day as being the one in which America was changed forever.

(This post is dedicated to all the many men & women who lost their lives on 9/11/01. May God continue to be with the families who still grieve, give them peace and provide hope & understanding to us all who will forever remember this day & mourn its loss of life from now until eternity. May God Bless America!)
