Heroes and Friends

These past few days have been very difficult our family during a time that America remembers when neighbors became heroes and strangers became friends, our family has been dealt an emotional loss. The air surrounding us is charged with an emotional nostalgia as we remember when times where most innocent.

I do not need to review the history with you but I thought I would share a moment today that brought me to my knees i found myself to be so filled with love and pride for our Country, our friends and our God. Our God who gives us the strength to overcome and the right to forgiveness and love for one another...our opportunity to share this beautiful life with our dear friends and family..although we may not understand why, we must understand that there is a reason.

There may be a time in our lives when a decision needs to be made, a decision that may defy reason, a decision that may be difficult for someone else to understand...When  these decisions are made by others we try to understand..but it is not up to us to understand the reason as we are not allowed the entire picture at this time.

10 years ago the 40 passengers and staff of United Airlines Flight 93 where held captive while flying over rural all know the story. President George W. Bush while dedicating their memorial today put it in this perspective for me today.. At the moment America's democrasy was under attack, our citizens defied their captors by holding a vote. The choice they made would cost them their lives, and they knew it. Those words clarified so much to me right now...they then called their families and said their goodbyes. Tapes of one of the Patriots reveals him telling his wife the plan and her telling him to sit down and maybe the hijackers would change their minds...she didn't see the whole she is so very proud of her husband and fellow Patriots.

Another part of the speech he mentioned that "the world will little note nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here"

Left Ronnie (my husband) Center Daniel Left Bryan
Daniel Wilson Rest in Peace

We will always remember you for who you are and how you touched our lives...while we may not understand we have faith and love you.
God bless you.
