Today, as on every other day, I will fly an American flag that was once flown in remembrance of my family over Bagram Airfield. We are honored to fly this flag, and to have befriended the soldier who sent it us while he was deployed during Operation Enduring Freedom.
On that day, we didn't know if there would be many more days to come, or many more flags to fly. Today, I remember those who were lost, and give thanks for those who have fought for this country, our freedom, and for our right to live life without terror.
The Eleventh Of September
We mourn their loss this day this year
Those now with God, no danger near
So many loved ones left do stand
Confronting loss throughout our land
My heart goes out to those who do
No one can fathom what they view
I firmly pray for peace of mind
Dear God please help each one to find
And to our soldiers now at war
God guide above, at sea, on shore
They are the best, I have no doubt
Our country’s pride, complete, devout
The finest force you’ll ever see
All freedom grown through liberty
One final thought comes clear to me
For what must live in infamy
Absolutely - We’ll Remember
The Eleventh - Of September
