Let Us Always Remember

As I listened to the radio Wednesday, Sept. 11, I heard audio clips of that day in 2001.  I was surprised, yet glad, it touched my emotions.  It is one thing to remember that day, the devastation, the death, the pain, the terror.  But to hear sound bites again, brought the horror of it back again. 
I made cards Wednesday.  Cards for our deployed heroes.  Cards for them to send home.  But also cards TO them, expressing my gratitude for their service, service that often does not make much sense, service that is not only distant but dangerous.
It is hard for me to be proud of America right now.  But if I separate the country from the politics then I love this country.  And I can be proud of our deployed heroes.
Here is one of the cards I made:
This darling digital image is by Dearie Dolls.  It is precolored.  The sentiment is by Doodle Pantry.  After printing the sentiment onto the card stock, I then ran the CS through the Cuttlebug with the Cuttlebug embossing folder.

I hope many of you support Operation Write Home by making cards for our deployed heroes.  If you have been curious about that and want to check into it, HERE is the link.
