day of memory and resolve

It's been 7 years since the attacks of September 11, 2001. No one has forgotten. No one wants to. No one can.

With bagpipe wail, we mourn their loss. With roses tossed, we celebrate their lives. With tolling bells, we mark their sacrifice. With names reverently read, we inscribe them on the country's soul.

On that day, America was scorned, assaulted, maimed. But she rose again.

The cockpit bullies are dead. The violent terrorist regime is tottering. The cowardly tyrants are fugitives in desert caves.

But America? She's still standing, fighting, shining. May all such enemies of the Union be thwarted; may we carry on in unwavering allegiance to our great nation and her flag; and may the blessings of God Almighty give strength and power to the United States of America.

  1. Valorie... your blog is so rich and thought-provoking! I really enjoyed getting caught up reading your past few posts! May God bless your writing ministry!
    This is going to sound silly, but would you believe that I actually do not receive the Ladies Companion... I plan to subscribe, but I was hoping not to miss out on this next one... are you the one to take care of that?
    Love what you are doing on your blog... keep it going!
