I Remember

​I just wanted to take a second to acknowledge 9/11. No deep message or shocking imagery. No blaming groups of people. No anger or political messages. Just a quiet moment of reflection and prayer for all of the lives lost…

Help me remember those that have died in the name of the freedom that I enjoy

Don’t let me take anything for granted in this world 

I am one link in a long chain of people who have sacrificed so that I may live free

Any gifts I receive I must give away if I am to keep what I have 

I honor those that came before me

I celebrate what follows after me

Teach me to show my gratitude 

Words are not enough

I live each day as tribute to freedom
Thank You
~ S.D.
