Thank you to our military and veterans for all you have done and are doing to protect this great country.

On this day September 11, nine years ago we were attacked and I want to take this opportunity to thank all those past and present who have devoted all or part of their lives to defending the United States of America. I remember the day as if it was yesterday and unfortunately it feels like many Americans have forgotten that terrible day. This post is to ask anyone reading it to thank our Veterans, Military, FBI, CIA, law enforcement, firemen, and anyone else or organization that is now or ever did serve to protect the United States. Many Americans go about their daily lives and are able to because of the United States military that has protected us since we became a country. I lost one of my best friends in the twin towers. His name was Christopher Vialonga or Vio as we all called him. He was just 30 years old and in the prime of his life. There are thousands upon thousands of people who lost someone close to them that day or in the years after that day, fighting to protect us. This country has seen many wars over the years, and we have lost many great men and women as a result. So please if you are reading this today, take the time to thank all those who have served to protect us now and in past wars. Say a prayer for all those who are serving today, for all those who have physical or mental scars from their service, and most of all for those who made the ultimate sacrifice for this country. Thank you US military and Veterans for all you have done and will do for your country and its citizens.
