What I learned in Washington DC

That I am grateful not to have known war personally. That I am grateful for the men and women who believe in our Nation and are willing to lay their lives down for my freedom. That I am grateful to live in peace in a free country—abundantly. That I am grateful for the opportunity to speak and write my thoughts and opinions freely. That I am grateful for the opportunity to vote. That I am grateful for the ideals, vision, and inspiration this country was founded on. That I am grateful to be able to be a profitable business owner doing work I love. That I am grateful for my family’s belief and support in me and my hopes and dreams. That I am grateful for being with Antonette and finding her uncle’s name on the Vietnam War Memorial: Samuel L. Kemp. That I am grateful for the ability and opportunity to learn whatever I can envision learning. That I am grateful I can wish God’s blessings on each of you dear readers.

You are remembered Samuel

    Thank you, Laura. I went along the wall and touched some names and said them aloud in remembrance. I love your blog but this particular entry touched me deeply.

    Every time I get in my car I turn on the headlights and ask the Universe to bless all the people of 9/11. I’ve been doing that since that very day.

    Thank you, again!

    Warm hugs,
    Robyn
