Today we Remember

We gather again to remember again the fateful day where many Americans left us. 
Most of us still remember where we were that Tuesday morning when the sky was blue and the TV came on to alert us of a terrorist attack. 

There is a lot going on in the world right now and personally I think that a lot of insanity is going on politically. But never the less, I hope we remember what truly counts as a nation. Never Forget became the mantra after September 11, 2001 and I hope Americans remember that each and everyday. 
We'll always remember...

Remember what you saw that was good and not bad. 
We saw people come together to help rebuild.
We became more aware of differences but at the same time committed to understanding each other.
We saw a renewed sense of patriotism and commitment to democracy.
We saw people survive, thrive, focus on the future, doing small everyday acts that were heroic without expecting a thank you...

All of these are things we need to carry on with and not just on September 11. Never Forget should not be a mantra we only use on September 11 when the calender says Patriots Day. Coming together and surrounding each other with love, kindness, goodwill, and patriotism are crucial in this time.

In the name of Never Forget and all it represents September is a month were I remember the time where people came together for me and my family. September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. When my sister was 5 she was diagnosed with ALL and life turned around for my family. My parents and sister and especially my sister who was diagnosed. The strength, determination, kindness, and love that we brought together to fight and people helped bring to us showed what it means to be an American in a way. We are so lucky to be Americans. I am proud to be an American.

My childhood days were amazing and full of memories. About few months ago I have been enjoyed a niagara falls trip with my family. That was an awesome experience of my life.
