Today is 9/11. That date has come to mean something to just about every American, and to many others across the world. Many important dates have rituals or events that are saved specifically for them. May I make a few suggestions for today?
Thank any and all emergency responders or military personnel (or their families) you meet today.
Take cookies to the local firehouse.
Bake bread and write thank you cards to drop off at the police station nearest your house.
Take time to talk with your children about the brave men and women who spend their lives defending our rights and property, so that we can pursue life, liberty, and happiness. Help them understand that, as well as those who came before and died for our country, there are also many who are alive and still fighting that we need to remember.
Make today a day of gratitude.
So fly your flag, wear red, white and blue; attend a commemoration, live your dreams, and do a good turn for someone around you…because that is what America is all about!
