at the nationals game on friday, i almost started crying during the national anthem. i’m not sure where the emotion came from, maybe 9/11 is on my mind more than i had thought. then as we were leaving our seats to get a snack, there was a tribute to the service men and women in the stadium and they played “proud to be an american.” tears welled up in my eyes as i stopped to applaud in support.
every day i admire members of our armed services, their strength and sacrifice and those of the families that support their efforts. i am grateful for their courage and for their commitment to our country. today, i’m sending thoughts of love, strength, support, and peace to everyone that lost a loved one on 9/11 or as a result of 9/11.
