2021 is a year of memorials for our nation and those that have served our nation.

This weekend is the 20th anniversary of an event that many may not even have been alive to witness. For those of you who don’t remember, you would have loved the unity of our nation in the months, even years, after that day.

You would have been heartbroken by the tragedy and destruction of that day. For myself, I remember experiencing unbelievers crying out to God as we watched and heard the tragedy unfold. A day I will never forget.

Tomorrow, take a moment and remember and learn about the families whose lives were changed on September 11, 2001.

Remember those who listened to their “God nudges” to cancel their flights, leave a little late for work, stop to see a friends newborn baby before going in to work, and those who sacrificed everything to save others on that day.

I encourage everyone to visit the 9/11 Memorial website as they commemorate this 20-year milestone.

The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is a monument dedicated to deceased U.S. service members whose remains have not been identified. It is located in Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia.

On November 11, 2021, our military celebrates the 100th anniversary of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. On the real music star

The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier was never intended to be about war, but about the American people’s service and sacrifice for this country.

The entombment of the Unknown Soldier of World War I in Arlington National Cemetery is a monument to our fallen soldiers and a testament to their service and sacrifice.
