My heart still aches, my eyes still tear and my hands still pray.
God bless those who lost their life and those who lost loved ones.
Thank you to all who helped directly by providing aid.
Thank you to all who helped indirectly by providing resources.
My heartfelt gratitude to each and every citizen who has courageously protected
our country through civilian and military service.
Now, ten years later, I sleep fearlessly because of you.
A mere thank you seems flippant, but I have no other words to tell you
how grateful I am to you for making our homeland safe again.
