I don't have many words today. It's a day to reflect on what happened to our country 10 years ago today. It's hard to believe it's been 10 years. I remember it like it was yesterday. We had friends visiting us from Iowa. We were living in Pensacola, Florida at the time and Russ was a flight instructor. He had gone to work that beautiful morning and I was entertaining our friends at home. Brandon was just 9 months old and it was time to feed him. We were all sitting in our living room watching Good Morning America just as I still do today. We watched the horrific events unravel on the TV from the start. I remember sitting there in disbelief. I tried to call Russ and I couldn't get through to him. Once I did he wasn't sure if he would be able to leave the base. It was in lock down. We were glued to the TV the rest of the day. I'm finding myself glued to the TV again today.
My heart aches for all the innocent people that we lost that day and for those that continue to make sacrifices to protect our freedom. I'm so proud of my Prince and all of our service men as they make huge sacrifices everyday and sometimes the ultimate sacrifice protecting us.
This card is for my Prince. I think it's pretty patriotic.
