Ramblings from Raeann

Never Forget

Posted by Raeann Blake (Author) on September 11, 2012

Eleven years ago today, our innocence was shattered. Most of us have lived our entire lives enjoying freedoms paid for by the sacrifices, blood, and lives of those who fought to make it that way.

“Not here. Not on our soil. They wouldn’t dare.” Then it was here. It was on our soil. And they did dare.

May we never forget all those who were lost and those who lost ones they loved because they did dare. May we never forget the way we felt on that horrible day.

If we learn nothing else from that day and all that has come after, I hope it is that life really is too short. We never really have enough time. Don’t wait to say ‘I love you’. Don’t wait to take that chance. Don’t wait to share a smile. Not because they dared, but because we do and because they may have taken our innocence, but they will never take our faith.
