On the anniversary of the tragedy of 9/11, please remember to keep the souls of the victims in your prayers. Remember the strong patriotism, as our country turned to God in the days afterward…before hearts hardened and we tried to figure things out ourselves. I am proud to be an American, and pray that God may continue to bless us amidst all of our faults. 9/11 is a tragedy we will never forget, a scourge for our country; and yet behind the cross of the tragedy we must remember our constant dependance on God and our need for other people.
O beautiful for heroes proved
In liberating strife.
Who more than self their country loved
And mercy more than life!
May God thy gold refine
Till all success be nobleness
And every gain divine!
May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. God bless America!
