Thank goodness this was a smaller school shooting. Much smaller than Columbine and Sandy Hook. May the angels guard the children in our world and protect them from all that would hurt hurt them. We need gun ownership to be much more regulated, at the least. I would love to see no guns but would be happy to see much tighter regulations. Thanks go out to the fireman whose bravery may have been larger than his logic, but I hope he is blessed for his bravery.

Namaste

In Memory Of All the Brave People Who Died So Bravely


It was America's second attack

It was America’s second attack

We all know where we were on 9-11-2001. I was sitting in a hospital waiting room because she was having surgery. I asked if I could turn the television on. I did turn it on and before I could sit down, I watch Matt and Katy go pale and ask what was that. The rest we know.

My father always talked about Pearl Harbor. The first time America was attacked. He saved newspapers with screaming headlines that the Japaneese attacked Pearl Harbor many service people were killed. Many ships from our Pacific fleet were docked and sunk due to the bombs.

All day long, I like many, talked to everyone we knew. Just to be sure they were safe. I was lucky. So many American families were no so lucky. Not only were the victims brave but their families continue to live bravely every day. The passengers and crew on Flight 93 were amazing and I am so impressed by their courage. The fact that they fought back must bring pride through the grief to the surviving family and friends. Bless them all.

Of all the bravery we saw that day and in the following days, to me, the passengers that fought back and made their plane crash were the bravest. I am sure as each of them made the decision to fight, an angel was with them and took them to their afterlife.

So many are lost, Not all of them were Americans. There were people from many countries and they experienced a new kind of warfare. America was experiencing a kind of war called Jihad.

Thank you for your bravery.

Thank you for your bravery.

America also remembers and honors the brave first responders.  Being a nurse, I can imagine a little bit what they saw and had to deal with. I know that every first responder was miraculously selfless.  Many gave up their lives to get people out of the wreckage. Many now have to live with the after effects of their bravery. Each day, our country owes them so much. They saved many lives. They found many victims buried in rubble. May God bless every first responder and all of the workers who suffer illness because of their desire to help the people. Thank you all for what you did for America.
