Still Remembering - Never Too Late

The tenth anniversary of 9/11 fell on a Sunday. Every year, in anniversary of the attacks, Sandy City puts up a "Field to Remember".

The city puts up a flag of every victim with a small card attached telling their name, where they were when they passed, and a little about their life. It is a touching site.

After all the American flags for the fallen they put up a flag of every country that was effected by 9/11 - even Portugal lost some of its citizens (it's where Oliver served his mission).

We decided to go walk the field after church and spend some time reflecting. I had barely started my freshman year of college in upstate New York when 9/11 happened. We all have memories of when, where, what, etc. of that day and it is good to remember, celebrate, and be amazed the resiliency of our nation. I'm proud to be sister to an air force officer who has proudly served our country since before that time and been to the "sandy scary" places on more than one occasion.

Seeing how we live less than two miles from the Sandy field it's probably an event we will attend again.

God Bless America!
