I honestly cannot believe it has been 12 years since September 11, 2001. It seems like just yesterday I was waking up and getting ready for school when I heard the news. I went into the living room and sat with everyone watching the news. We ended up not going to school that day and stayed home to watch the horrific events unfold. I was a freshman in high school and I, along with thousands of other people didn’t fully understand what was happening. We knew we were being attacked my terrorists but didn’t realize it would change not only the United States, but also the world. If you were old enough to remember the attacks, I know you know exactly where you were or what you were doing when the attacks happened. We will never, ever forget the thousands of people who died either in the planes, in the buildings, or the ones running into the terror saving others.
On September 11th, my husband was a part of a 9/11 memorial parade and ceremony. The ceremony was amazing and filled with amazing stories of heroism, patriotism, and war. I am so thankful for all the men and women (past, present, and future) who serve and protect our amazing county. Thank You, Thank You, THANK YOU to all of America’s heroes!
Here are some photos from the parade and ceremony. I am SO proud of my husband. At the end of the ceremony I was amazed by how many people came up to my husband and thanked him, shook his hand, and hugged him. It makes my heart smile and brought tears to my eyes. I am SO proud of my husband, and SO proud to be an AMERICAN.

The beginning of the parade. The rumble of all the motorcycles gave me goosebumps! They were all riding for a cause.
As a small thank you I made brownies for my hubby’s fellow Marines.
9/11 will always be in our hearts, and we will NEVER forget.
