I Will

What will you do to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks against the United States of America on September 11, 2001?

I will proudly fly the United States flag.
I will recite the pledge of allegiance, with emotion choking my heart.
I will grieve again the loss of so many innocent lives.
I will honor the many heroes from that day by giving blood.
I will tell my family I love them, because we never know when our next breath will be our last.
I will say a prayer for peace on Earth.

The Pledge of Allegiance
I pledge allegiance to the flag
Of the United States of America
And to the Republic
For which it stands,
One nation, under God
With liberty and justice for all.

What I will not do is watch TV. All the hype, the lead up, the is just still too raw. Too scary. Too painful. I want to escape that day and not be reminded of it visually. I don't want to see replays of the planes. The blue sky. I can never look at a blue sky the same way ever again.
No I cannot watch TV that day.
