September 11th is a day that comes and goes.
On this day, people stop and reflect on the loss and the grief and forever changed world we live in, but after the day passes, folks go back to their every day lives and forget.
We say that we won’t forget but in truth, we do. Life moves onward and so it should.
So on this day, I want to stop and reflect. I want to remember. I need to grieve the lives lost and the lives changed. I want to honor the first responders who bravely sacrificed everything that day.
I also want to pay tribute to all our troops, who in the months and years since 9/11/01, put their lives on the line in the fight against our enemies.
Our innocence was lost on 9/11/01. We were all forever changed.
So on 9/11/15, I will remember. I will reflect. I will grieve again.
But on 9/12/15, I will keep living because that is the best revenge against the evil that befell us that horrible day fourteen years ago today.
