Ordinary Heroes

It was this day 12 years ago, America experienced an unfathomable evil.  The heart of our nation was extremely wounded. In spite of the malicious acts of hate, the heart of America demonstrated that we are truly the UNITED States of America.

There were countless firefighters, police officers, businesspersons, and others pulling together to help their fellow Americans.  It didn’t matter if you were a father, mother, child, employed, unemployed, married, single, rich, or poor; everyone in some way helped.

Many people ran blindly into buildings and sacrificed their life voluntarily.

It was the actions of these ordinary heroes that sutured the hearts of all 50 states during and after those diabolical acts.

If you ask anyone involved in the immediate post-9/11 rescues, every man and woman said the same thing.  “It is what we do; I was just doing what any other American would have done.”   I believe this would also be the sentiments of all those who lost their lives on that life-changing day. 

I was once told, “If everyone does a little, no one has to do a lot.”

How will you live your life in their honor?

Find a way to live doing a little of something to make a difference.

We honor these ordinary heroes who performed extraordinary courage in the face of ambiguity and fear.

We are appreciative to all involved with 9/11, along with those serving our country overseas everyday.  We THANK YOU!  Because of your service, we have our freedom to be weird.

Thank God for all the brave men and women who have died and those who are still risking their lives for the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!

Be the wEiRd this world needs!
