I’m sure that, just like you, when I first heard the news of the terrorist attacks on America I cried.  I cried for my country.  I cried for the people whose lives were senselessly taken from them.  I cried for the families whose loved ones were never coming home again.

As the day slowly dragged on, just like you, I was glued to my TV and was both horrified by the terrorists attack and its aftermath, and in awe of the brave firefighters, police officers, men and women of New York City, of Washington DC, and of Flight 93.   That night, like many, many of you and millions across our great land, I went to church, fell to my knees and prayed to God for our beautiful country, citizens, and those who perished.  I promised I would never, ever forget what happened on 9/11.  And, just like you, I won’t.  My American flag proudly flies outside my home day and night out of respect for my country and in remembrance of 9/11.  God Bless America!
