There are many mixed emotions that come with remembering September 11, 2001 – anger towards those who attacked, despair for those lost, gratefulness for the brave men and women who risked their own lives to save others, and a great sense of pride in our country. And though these attacks occurred 15 years ago, we still feel their effects as if they happened yesterday.
It is important for us, as Americans, to look to the future while remembering and learning from the past. At Packages From Home, we are making the conscious decision to turn our hate for the terrorists who made 9/11 a monumental day into love for the 170,000+ deployed troops who currently protect our country and the 20 million veterans who still make sacrifices for their service. While our hearts are heavy for our lost loved ones, they are also full with pride and solidarity for those who carry on. With great honor and thanks, we remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice on 9/11, the loved ones they left behind, and the brave Americans who volunteered to preserve our freedoms.
If you would like to support the American military heroes who continue to protect our great country, please make your tax-deductible, monetary contribution by clicking the yellow "Donate" button on this page.
Thank you, and God bless America!
