I spent a good amount of time this morning debating....with myself.
Debating whether to post anything on this day. 
I just don't know what words I could use that could properly encapsulate the feelings I felt on one horrible day. 
One horrible day exactly ten years ago. 
Or how any of us felt. 
So I decided to borrow some words....from Katherine Lee Bates.
This is my favorite verse of America the Beautiful. 
Because it says so much about that day and all the days since. 

"Oh beautiful for heroes proved
In liberating strife,
Who more than self their county loved
And mercy more than life!
America! America!
May God thy gold refine,
Till all success be nobleness
And every gain divine!"
