Today we all need to remember those who lost their lives in the attack of 9/11 so many years ago. It is hard to imagine how far this country has come since that dreadful day in 2001, when all hope was lost and the idea of recovery was far from certain. We also need to remember those who lost their lives in the fighting after the attack. Everyone is important.
I'd like to thank all the families of those serving our country, who fight for our freedom and the freedom of others. It is our duty as spouses to keep the home fires burning so our military members can try and have one less stress to worry about while putting their lives on the line.
I think about all the wonderful friends I have met over the past 3 years and how their families are coping with multiple and sometimes back to back deployments. Those women who give birth without the support of their husbands are very strong and should be an inspiration to all.
Not everyone can be a military spouse but those of us who can stay strong and calm help many other spouses who are unable to cope.
Thank you to everyone I know.
