911 ~ Nation Of Survivors

Nation Of Survivors

In the bright September morning without warning to us all
A few thousand lives were shattered and we watched two buildings fall
And a billion souls felt empty, and the flags at half-mast fly
In the memory of the innocent which didn't have to die

We've lost brothers, sisters, cousins. We've lost family and friends
But we've made the choice not to forget their lives and tragic ends
Though we've had our share of troubles we have put them all aside
As a nation grieves we find ourselves defending them with pride

We're a nation of survivors, with one heart we share a tear
But we live to serve the memory, not giving in to fear.
Though they try to take security with the things they've done and said
All their acts of inhumanity bring unity instead.
So we stand here as a family. One heart, one soul, one voice.
We are challenged by this moment, and united here by choice.

Somethings missing~

Ok, this is kind of a "sappy" post but thought I would share it anyways :) Today is the first morning in a very long time that I woke up and was actually cold ( yes, us Texans get cold when it is in the 60's :).

I got up, let the cat and dog out and decided to open the windows! After our very long, hot summer this is a treat.

As I felt the cool air in the house and smelled the familiar smell of Fall coming, I thought "somethings missing" and then it hit me ~ it was my kids.

It doesn't happen often as this transition to adulthood with all the guys has gone very well, but that was definitely an "empty nest" moment :)
