As we remember the events of that fateful day ten years ago, we salute those who suffered, sacrificed, and who have fought for our freedom since that day. There are some who have lost their lives, given their lives up for another, yet some who are still living with images forever burned in their minds. For those families who have suffered and lost a loved one, we salute you. We cannot imagine the pain you have felt since that day, but we so appreciate the sacrifice your loved one made in the name of freedom.
God Bless America, our soldiers, our emergency workers, our government, our people.
"God Bless America,
Land that I love.
Stand beside her, and guide her
Thru the night with a light from above.
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans, white with foam
God bless America, My home sweet home."
