A Thankful American
I awoke that day to a radio news report of the attacks in New York, then watched the towers collapse over and over on tv. I felt united with my neighbors across this country, and proud and thankful to see hundreds of flags flying on cars and homes. Whether on the verge of WWIII or just an unknown future, I felt gratitude for all our servicemen and women who served our country and protected us. I will always be thankful for all who make this a safe and free place to live.
