I received the following e-mail from my cousin Ricky's wife. I thought I would share it......

Tomorrow, is September 11. I just wanted each of you to take a moment to think, to think about where you were that day. Think about the horrible pain that came to us all. Think about watching those planes, with Al Queda aboard, hit those towers. Think about the people aboard those planes filled with innocent men, woman, and children. Think about the thousands of people that died in those towers. Think about the heros that died that day trying .

Remember - that is why our soldiers are where they are. That is why. Never forget.


Tomorrow, my angel goes into Kuwait. Tomorrow, is September 11, 2007. He is there defending our freedom along with countless others. They are today's hero's. They remember, they are there, they know. They go to defend our country. They go to protect you and I. They die for us. They DIE to protect this country from the evil of terrorism.

I just wanted to remind each of us about the feelings that we had after that day. Remember the flags, remember the unity. I do, and I remember never feeling more proud to be an American. Each day since then, my pride grew. It continues to grow each day.

I felt compelled to write this. I couldn't help myself. I dislike where this country has gone since that day. Instead of remembering, and continuing to be unified, we grew apart. Our country went back to the way it was before. I feel it is worse though. We are more divided than ever.

I just want everyone of us, at least for one day, forget being this or being that. Let's just be proud to be American's. Let's just be proud of our troops. Let's remember, remember that day.

With sincere pride,
Leann S. Duncan

Please continue to pray for Ricky and all those that love him along with the thousands of other service men and women serving our country.
