We Remember

I have a fun post to do, but I decided to wait until tomorrow for that, since today we remember all those who passed away six years ago on September 11, 2001. I proudly switched out my Ohio State flag that hangs on my balcony during football season this morning for Old Glory.

As someone who works feet from a building that might as well have a big target on it, days like today bring apprehension and pride. Apprehension because the Capitol Police seemed to be a little more watchful this morning. Pride because I am proud of everyone in this city who overcomes the "what if's" on a daily basis to go about their lives and work to make our country safer. So take a moment out today to say a prayer for all those who were lost, for their families, for our nation's military who are facing dangers every day to keep us safe and for our country. For we are lucky enough to live in America, the greatest country of them all.
