“Oh Beautiful for Spacious Skies… for Amber Waves of Grain…For Purple Mountain Majesties Above the Fruited Plane…America, America, God Shed His Grace on Thee…and Crown Thy Good With Brotherhood From Sea to Shining Sea”.  Katherine Lee Bates-1913

It wasn’t that long ago was it when you awakened to the horror of 9/11? We are certain that you recall exactly where you were when you heard the news, yes?

It may seem like forever to those who lost loved ones and who remember it just like it was yesterday. Today on 9-11-2013, Horizon CSA takes a moment to pause and reflect.

We offer up our prayers and heartfelt condolences to those who are still hurting, still remembering and never forgetting their loved ones. For those of us who didn’t lose loved ones but who remain shocked that the unimaginable happened in this great land, we offer empathy and share your disbelief.

We also offer encouragement to you and confidence that America remains strong and full of hope. Embrace it.

We acknowledge that living in this great land, the United States of America has been a dream come true for all of us. This is our country and one that has afforded each person unparalleled opportunities to achieve their dreams.

Be encouraged, Lady Liberty  remains strong! She has been the symbol of  hope for our ancestors as they saw her for the first time.  America has and is “the shining light on a hill” to many around the world.

Today, we simply ask that each and every person living here in this country to embrace our liberty and freedom but also be willing to make a positive contribution.  Regardless of whether you are a natural born American citizen, a naturalized citizen or a person seeking citizenship living in this country and utilizing shared resources,  we simply ask that you consider your own productivity and personal willingness to extend a personal hand to this great land.  Just about everyone can do something constructive.….yes…even the disabled and infirm. We have seen countless examples of this in sheltered workshops, Wounded Warriors support groups, senior citizen groups, churches  and many private sector charitable groups elsewhere in this country.

At Horizon CSA, we believe living in America, this great land, represents a life life worth living.

Isn’t  a life worth living one that also merits the individual effort to extend oneself to the betterment of a culture, a country, state or community? Isn’t  there something you can do even in your own neighborhood or community?

We encourage you to start with yourself today. Do a self assessment and personal inventory. You determine if your life reflects the  spirit, strong, individual work ethic, faith, contribution and core values that were supported by our founding fathers and that  made America strong.

Remember… it is up to us…this is our country…America the Beautiful!
