Where were you when you heard about the attack? I remember clearly where I was and what I was doing. I was at home feeding my 9 day old little girl and watching my 1 year old little boy play with his toys right next to me. You can imagine how emotional I was with my hormones being all messed up! Tears and fears pretty much sums it up. I remember calling my mom who was at work and seeing if she had heard about it. I didn't want to continue watching the coverage but I couldn't take my eyes away from it. I remember how our country came together and supported each other -- no matter what. We rose above our political stances -- we were no longer Republicans and Democrats -- we were Americans. How quickly we seem to forget.
Today I honor and remember all of our fallen heroes and salute those who continue to defend and honor our country. I will never forget!
I'm just a singer of simple songs, I'm not a real political man. I watch CNN but I'm not sure I can tell you the difference in Iraq and Iran. But I know Jesus and I talk to God and I remember this from when I was young: faith, hope and love are some good things He gave us...but the greatest is love."
