Think about how you felt the day the Towers fell. We were all so in love with America that day, that week, that month... But it seems as we near the ten year mark (yes, it's been nearly that long) that we've lost that love and pride and all we want to focus on is the bad stuff...
Why is it so hard for us to focus on the positive - and there is truly so much positive - that this country gives us. I'm not saying ignore the bad. But it seems like so much pride and love have gotten lost in anger and fight...
So for a few mins today, can we focus on what we love about being an American? Share why you are proud to be an America. Focus on the good and take a moment to let the anger, frustration and fight go long enough to remember how lucky we all truly are!

I always have love for my country. I love that we all have the right to disagree and have our own opinions. I live in the most generous country in the world and the men and women that serve in our military give more than the rest of us, IMO.

Long Island, N.J. & Manhattan have never stopped remembering & being proud to be an American. There are still signs all over here so we never do forget & most of us knew at least someone who died that day. Just drive around & you'll see our flags still fly high here. We have never stopped being proud.

Very thankful for the selfless military personnel that give so much of their time and even their lives to fight for the rest of us. They are not appreciated nearly as much as they should be!!!
