Remembering The Fallen: Memorial Day 2020

So often, we as Americans, see this holiday as a time for barbecues, parties and so much more.

But the fact is, we fail to realize that all of that can wait for another day.

Memorial Day is a time of remembrance. A time to remember and honor the countless members of the Armed Forces that didn’t make it home to their loved ones.

The ones who gave the ultimate sacrifice while fighting to ensure the freedom that we all enjoy today.

This Memorial Day, take a moment to remember the real reason for this day, the real heroes.

The ones who gave their lives so selflessly just so that we could live free lives.

God Bless.

9/11/01: The Day the World Went Up in Flames

18 years ago tomorrow, the world came crashing down around all of us when planes crashed into the World Trade Center and the Twin Towers hit the ground. I don’t remember much about that somber day, when every human walking the face of this Earth were stopped dead in their tracks, speechless because of what had just occurred. But I do remember running up to my mom when she got home from school that day and screaming “Mommy, Mommy, Mommy! The planes just hit the buildings!” I didn’t realize what had just happened, what kind of impact that this event would have on this world. All I knew was the planes had hit the building, because I was three-years-old. What else am I supposed to know about what had just happened at that age? Have you forgotten where you were, what you were feeling, do you remember your reaction? Before laying your head down tonight, hug your loved ones, tell them you love them, get on a knee and pray for the families of the ones who were lost on that tragic day some 18 years ago. Lives were literally blown away, they literally went up in flames. Just as this country did on September 11, 2001. May we never forget what occurred 18 years ago. God Bless.
