Our Flag Still Stands

Our Flag Still Stands

The skies opened up that day
With anger and hatred
It rained down upon us
With a vengence

We fell to the ground
Knelt in our tears
We felt a fear like no other
Shake our souls to the core

Our hearts have broken a million times
For the millions of lives
That have fallen before our eyes
On that day and everyday after

But out of the ashes
We rose as one
We hold our families a little closer
We walk through life a little slower
We look at beauty a little longer

We put our fear behind us
As we look around
Our flag still stands
And it sings of freedom


‎“Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, to assure the survival and success of liberty.” - President John F. Kennedy // Remembering 9/11


September 11 will always hold a special place in our hearts. My heart goes out to the families of the lives that were lost on that day and everyday after. The children who will never know their parents, the parents who will live without their children, and the spouses who have lost their soul mates.
My husband fought for our freedom after this terrible event and i am so thankful that he is still here to walk beside me and hope he does forever.

Great captures and great caption. Did you write the verse, Jenny? It's very powerful. I'm also proud of my veteran husband - aren't we blessed?

Yes, very important to remember this tragedy. I heard yesterday that almost half of those who died had children under 18. Those poor kids have to live with their loss everyday for the rest of their lives.

Great photos too.
