We are the USA. You take a swing at us, we come back FIGHTING. We come back STRONGER.
I love this video. I have been trying all day to get into my pictures on my desktop computer to post a few of the pictures we took t the 9/11 memorial to no avail. So when I saw this video, I thought It depicted exactly what I wanted to say about today.
My friend Nicole reminded me today of a quote that Mr. Rogers had said (a least it had floated around social media that he said it) and it goes like this:
“When I was a boy, and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say ‘Look for the helpers, you will always find people who will be helping.”
It is so strange how the pain of that day is still so real, and how I find myself emotional at times when I realize how much life changed that day, for certain people living on the east coast but especially for our nation. But I also absolutely LOVE what has come OUT of that day – America in unity, rebuilding in strength. It was so healing going to the 9/11 memorial this year. Seeing the plans and the building that was already started. To take a minute and reflect what we all went through and how we are coming out stronger on the other side.
I am proud to be an American, and I am optimistic about our future!
