WOD Mon 9/12/16

1. As i sit watching FOOTBALL, and appreciating how it doesn't feel like we are the surface of the sun, i am reminded of how great this country is. How it is the land of opportunity where people from all over the world come to make their dreams come true. How it is the land of freedom to express yourself even when that expression could be against those who help keep this country free. I would guess that all of us reading this remember September 11th, 2001.  I would guess we all remember where we were when we saw the World Trade Center Towers fall.  The anger, sadness and disbelief we all felt was universal. But, I have never felt the unity of our country like i did on 911 and the days that followed.  We are a truly blessed and powerful nation. Today we honor those who fight for our freedom, those who's families were torn apart by this tragedy and those who lost their lives on that day 15 years ago.
