Yesterday marked the 10th Anniversary of 9/11
I do this blog every year but this year, I opted to put it up the day AFTER. Simply because we as a country should be reminded of this event every day, not just on September 11 every year.
Most of this post will be videos but I have a few things to say here.
First of all, My heart goes out to anyone and everyone who was affected in one way or another by this event. A dear friend of mine told me “happy 911 day.” He says that because he thinks it’s important to remember how we as a nation set our differences aside and united together to support each other and we do it every year on this day. Democrats, republicans, white black gay straight Christian Muslim we are America.
Next, 2 million of the 9/11 generation were so moved by the events that they joined up. I’m damn proud to have been one of those 2 mil. To my fellow soldiers who have fallen; your sacrifice was not in vain. To those who are still here; keep on keepin on. Drink water, change your socks and drive on. Pain is only weakness leaving the body. I miss being a soldier, even though it was spiritually draining for me.
Finally, They were wives husbands sons daughters brothers sisters cousins nieces nephews fiancées girlfriends boyfriends friends acquaintances employees employers and much more. But most importantly, they were innocent.
WARNING: Some of these videos are graphic, but sometimes, that is what it takes to get attention.
Hugs and Sunny Surf,
