Now I lay me down to sleep...one less terrorist the world to keep...with all my heart I give my thanks...to those in uniform regardless of ranks...you serve our country and serve it well...with humble hearts your stories tell...so as I rest my weary eyes...while freedom rings our flag still flies...you give your all, do what you must...with God we live and God we trust....Amen.
I changed up my playlist so the song Golden Dream was at the top. For those of you who are not familiar with The American Adventure in the World Showcase at Epcot in Walt Disney World.... this show touches my heart each and every time I see it. I always end up in tears even though I know what I am going to see and how it is going to end, yet I go back again and again and again and will continue to. You will hear actual, real life sound takes from various pieces of our history within this song. This song is played at the end of the show where they do a photo montage which includes images from 9/11.
Did you hear the story of the baseball fans last night cheering when they heard about the death of Bin Laden? It was a game against the New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies (2 of the states that were included in the devistation of 9/11). Cheering and chants of "USA" erupted in the 9th inning with the game tied at 1. 911 = 9/11. I found that to be pretty profound.
Thank you to our soldiers who keep us safe and to their families who sacrifice so much to make it happen. May the events of yesterday bring closure and hopefully some peace to the families who lost loved ones during that horrible day in our country's history. May you truly rest in peace now Brock.
