We Remember. We will Stand.

~~September 11, 2001: sometimes it’s easy to forgot. often something so painful is blocked out from memory. but we will remember. we are America: Land of the Free, Home of the Brave. God HAS blessed America, He shed His grace on our nation; may He continue to do so. ♥

To those who have given so much so that we might live in freedom: Thank you. This poem is for you….

We’re Still Standing

Those twin towers

Standing tall with pride,

Fell with grieving hearts.

Stunned, America cried.

But we’re still standing.

Bin Laden tried

To crush our land,

But we stood our ground

With our flag in hand

And we’re still standing.

Red for the valor

And the blood that fell.

White for the purity

Our heroes tell.

Blue for the justice

That will be done,

Proving once more

These colors don’t run

And we’re still standing.

Today hurts as we remember that painful day. We are forever scarred. But the Lord’s power is still in control. May He comfort all those loved ones left behind and protect our troops and others serving this great nation. To God be the glory! Have a great weekend!

Terrorists can’t destroy the United States. But the United States is slowly destroying itself through abortion. The greatest threat to the United States is not the foreign enemy but the domestic evil that kills more Americans than anything else.

When we look at the twin towers we ought to be reminded of the necessity to reject hatred for others, as that was what those hijackers were driven by themselves, and seek to create true peace in the world with love. Overcome evil with good.

God Bless,

why so angry? why so bitter?

YOU stopped at MY blog. This happens to be a place where you cannot tell ME to “shut up” because this is not your territory. It’s mine.

You did not have to stop by this blog, or read through any of my entries. No one forced you to.

Have a nice day.

Could I have pemission to use the picture of the Twin Towers in flames? I am writing a book on “Airport Humor”. The picture is to be a reminder of 911 on the “Forward” page. The forward page is serious and not humor. Thank you for any consideration of this request. Regards, Barney Smith
