God Bless America

For the last 7 years I've always tried to think of the appropriate words to say about this day. Last year was the first time I had a blog on this day. But, I wrote about going to a casino with family. Instead I wrote about 9/12, another important date.
I've written poems, emails to friends and family, journal entries, and chatted with people about this day. This morning as I was thinking about what to say two words kept hitting me.

God Bless.

God Bless all those killed or wounded by animals from hell.
God Bless all those who died trying to save or help the victims.
God Bless all the families who lost a loved one.
God Bless all the people who volunteered to help on that day.
God Bless all the people who could do nothing more than cry and pray.
God Bless all the soldiers who have been put in harm's way because of this day.
God Bless the brainwashed terrorists who jolted this country into remembering what makes us strong, each other.
God Bless the politicians who have been using the memory of today to scare others to forward their own careers.
God Bless those who complained about how much compensation they received in comparison to others.
God Bless those who use this day to grandstand.
God Bless those who might try again to harm innocent people and that they might find peace in their soul.
God Bless all.
