The eve of 9/11

Matt Berther bio photo By Matt Berther Comment

I've already run through the full gamut of emotions, including horror, sadness, anger and rage. Even though people say that time heals all wounds, this is one that I dont think we will ever completely recover from. Even though I didnt know anyone involved in the tragedy personally, this is something that hit everyone very close to home.

A lot of fantastic songs have come from this tragedy. Two of my favorites are Darryl Worley's Have You Forgotten and Toby Keith's Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue.

"Now this nation that I love
has fallen under attack
A mighty sucker punch came flying in
from somewhere in the back
Soon as we could see clearly
through our big black eye
Man, we lit up your world
like the 4th of July."

--Toby Keith (The Angry American -- Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue)

Let's never forget the people who died that day, and lets never forget the soldiers who have died since then protecting our freedoms that we cherish. Let's not forget the soldiers that are still out there fighting for us. I can guarantee they remember what they are fighting for.

Take a minute to tell the ones you love how much you love them. Pick up the phone and call that person with whom you've had a falling out with. Life is too short.

God bless America...
