9/11/01 forever changed the fabric of our nation. For some, it ignited a spark to serve. For others, it only reinforced their decision to do so. But since then, we have remained at war — and that fear and deep resolve that Americans collectively felt on that Tuesday morning 16 years ago is something our service members and their families haven’t been able to exhale. We are still sending our loved ones into the night. We are still waiting to hear if they’ll come home safe. We sit with bated breath, holding our children, when we hear the news about another convoy, another ambush, another mishap… and all we can do is pray that we will be strong enough if The Knock is on our door.
In the silence today, watch this video. Do something kind for a stranger or first responder. Fly your flag. Never forget 9/11, and please remember the men and women who continue to fight. 🇺🇸❤️🇺🇸
