SALUTING OUR AMERICAN FLAG AND REMEMBERING....
September is a month of cooler temperatures (usually), football games, and family gatherings. It is also a month to reflect on those historic periods in our Country's past. Let's look at some important September dates that touched our lives forever and made all of us stronger and more patriotic.
Do You Remember Where You Were On September 9th, 2011?
That moment is forever etched in my mind, as terrorists challenged our America and destroyed life as we had known it. Patriot Day is the day set aside to remember lives lost and those who risked their lives to save others. Take time to close your eyes and say a prayer for all those who lost loved ones and ask God to protect us from anything like that again! Remember to stand united as a Nation and never forget.
is September 17th and commemorates the signing of the Constitution of the United States. Wonder why John Hancock signed his name so big? He was making sure the King did not need his glasses to see his name! The Constitution, along with the Declaration of Independence, and the Bill of Rights, are the 3 documents that shaped our United States government.
National Gold Star Mother's Day,
also called National Gold Star Mother's and Family's Day is the last Sunday in September. This day of remembrance was created to recognize and honor those that who lost a son or daughter while serving in our armed forces. The gold star is a recognized symbol, signifying the death of a family member while on active duty, serving the United States of America. These families know the pain of immeasurable loss and they, like ourselves, know the pride that comes with extraordinary service to America. May each of us support and pray for these Gold Star families.
Proudly display your Flag,
Be proud of our Patriots and,
May God continue to bless America!
