It seemed like just yesterday that he was sitting in my office in his fresh new suit. So young. So full of dreams. Tonight the dream was cut short. I am heartbroken. Below is the story of a true hero.

As I went through the day today

I could not help but think about

How I felt that day 7 years ago

And how much about it has been forgotten

The flags were at half staff

And there were memorials

But I think many Americans have forgotten

About the horrors of that day....how they felt

And the importance to guard against

Those who want to do harm to us.

I was sent a video which was a wonderful memorial

To those lost.

I would like to post it and wanted to forward it.

However, I had to stopped for a moment

And worry about who I might offend.

It was a dreadful moment in our country's history,

But sometimes we need a reminder of exactly what we lost that day.

I pray for those who lost love ones that day,

For every person in this country who was affected by those actions....

(That would probably be everyone.....)

For our President and for our troops so far away.

God Bless America!!!!

I have been tagged by my friend Lori to list the six best things about this summer of 08. I have to say I had a very tough time as it has not been one of my best summers but I managed to come up with the following:

1. I picked the winner of the Belmont Stakes and won a boat load of money. Yep, I picked the horse that upset Big Brown in his quest for the Triple Crown....well it wasn't much of an upset since Big Brown finished last.......

2. The Diamondbacks were able to hold on to first place....by a thread. (Not anymore though....the Dodgers just went up by a half a game.....damn that Manny!!!!)

3. I got to spend a few days soaking up the sun in San Diego.

4. My son graduated from the Academy and he is on to an exciting career!!!

5. Michael Phelps won EIGHT gold medals (Woo Hoo!!)

6. John McCain is the Republican candidate for President ( and I couldn't be happier!!)

And that is my summer in a nutshell!!



btw....I read alot of blogs but I don't really have any internet friends so I have no one to tag....

Sometimes I Just Have to Shake My Head

Michael Moore has sent a letter to God.

The letter basically implies that Hurricane Gustav is retribution to the Republicans.

This is proof that I read too much on the internet.

And I should just bury my head in the sand and block out the entire world.

Or maybe there's room for me on the space station.

Then I don't have to listen to all this nonsense.
