Kev’s Daily Take On 09/11/2022


love this

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, One nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

Events and Celebrations

PATRIOT DAY – We will never forget where we were when those two planes struck the World Trade Center. We will never forget the images of people leaping to their deaths to avoid the flames.  We will never forget hearing of the Pentagon being hit or of Flight #93 crashing into that Pennsylvania field – killing all on board.  We will never forget the plumes of smoke and the clouds of dirt and ash that covered New York.  We will never forget the empty skies, devoid of planes for days afterwards.  We will never forget the heroes who selflessly rushed in to rescue the hurt and injured.  We will never forget the survivors who made it out of the buildings, with their stories of courageous people who guided them out or gave their lives so others could live.  We will never forget the brave passengers of Flight #93, who purposefully sacrificed themselves so that fourth plane would not wreak any havoc as well.  We will never forget the fire, police, emergency and EMT crews who responded and sometimes paid the ultimate price.  We will never forget how people from all over the country answered the call to do what they could to help with the search and rescue and the cleanup.   We will never forget how full the churches were afterwards.  We will never forget how this country came together for the sake of each other.  We will never forget the 3,000 people who lost their lives that day. We will never forget that sometimes we are a divided country, but when it comes down to it, we are there for each other because we are all Americans.  Being an American transcends color, social status, political affiliation and religious belief.  We showed the world that day that we can take a sucker punch and even get knocked down. But we pick ourselves up as one people and stand together.  God bless America!

To all of you grandmas, grandpas, maw-maws, grampys, and nana’s, we wish you a HAPPY GRANDPARENTS DAY!

Thinking of all of those loved ones who have crossed over that rainbow bridge on NATIONAL PET MEMORIAL DAY.

NATIONAL HOT CROSS BUN DAY brings us a sweet treat that is good for sharing or with a cup of coffee – or both.

On this day…

 1789 – Alexander Hamilton becomes our first Secretary of the Treasury

Happy Birthday to…

O. Henry (1862-1910)
Famous People

A pretty good writer who like surprise endings

Paul Bear Bryant (1913-1983)

One of the most successful college football coaches of all time.  His record of 323-85-17 speaks for itself.  He also recruited the first black player for Alabama and was a major force in the integration of college football

Tom Landry (1924-2000)

Another awesome coach – he led the Dallas Cowboys to 20 consecutive winning seasons, 5 Superbowl’s and is the reason they are called “America’s Team”

Brian De Palma (1940- )

This director gave us “Carrie”, “Mission: Impossible”, “Scarface” and “The Untouchables” among many others

Harry Connick Jr (1967- )
Huff Post

Jazzy Grammy Award winning singer, musician and actor

Enjoy the day and make it your own

Most Holy Father, we thank you for this blessed country and ask for it to be united in seeking purpose and destiny.  May we care for each other and may our leaders look to you for guidance and wisdom.  I pray in your name, Jesus, Amen.
