Today will be a busy one. I'm heading out the door this morning to go pick apples at a nearby orchard. Nothing like WORKING for my fruit, hey?!
Still, I can't let today pass, without pausing to honor the memory of all those directly affected by the 9/11 attacks.
I'm remembering all those who parished tragically nine years ago today, and their surviving families, with prayers.
I'm also thinking about our military people today, past and present, dedicated and patriotic, having served our country, and those serving her still today - especially abroad. Thank you, one and all, for your service! They have my prayers every day, but especially so today.
I'm praying, also, for our police and firemen, those sacrificing souls who put themselves in harms way for our sakes, right here at home. They were the hero-victims of that tragic day.
