Standard

September 11, 2001 is a day that most Americans will never forget.  It’s a day that we all remember where we were and what we were doing when our nation was attacked.  It’s hard to believe it has been 11 years since that tragic day.  My thoughts and prayers go out to all the family’s that lost a loved one in those attacks.  I can’t imagine the grief and sadness these families have endured over this time.

I personally never want to forget.  I want to remember every year the sacrifice they all made.  The hard work all the Fire Fighters and Police departments poured into saving as many lives as they could.  The sacrifice that our Men & Women gave to go to war so that we may be safe. How our country pulled together to become one and fight the bad guy.  It still brings tears to my eyes every time I think of that day.

So on this 11 year Anniversary of September 11, 2001 I wanted to pay a little more respect and have my daughter Savannah involved.  Now she is only 3 so she doesn’t understand the whole concept of what happened on that day but I thought if we start now this could be something she could grow to understand in time.  I decided to have some cupcakes made and take them to our local fire department and also have Savannah make them a card in appreciation.

This was Savannah’s first time going to a Fire Department and she was extremely excited.  We pulled into Fire Station 39 Location on Providence Road Charlotte, NC.

We walked up cupcakes in hand and knocked on the door.  We were greeted by Fire Fighter Jeff.  We gave him the cupcakes and a big thank you for all that they do.  Mr. Jeff was very kind and took the time to show Savannah around the station.

So those are a few pictures from our time at the Fire Station.  I appreciate all they do and all they have done to save lives.  That also goes for the Police and Medic.  These people do not get paid near enough to put their life’s on the line every day.

What did you do to remember?
