How do you even find words for today? 13 years ago, the 9/11 attacks on the United States occurred and we quickly found ourselves in a war against terrorism. It was a war many didn’t want, but, because of that horrible day 13 years ago, America is now stronger, braver, and has learned to lean on each other more often.
Every day I am proud of my country, but on days like today, my sense of patriotism, like many Americans, is greater. I’m feeling a little like CMT and wanted to share with y’all some of my favorite patriotic country songs. What other genre of music celebrates America more than country music? (Trust me, it was hard narrowing down the list.)
Thank you to the policemen, firefighters, volunteers, the military, and the families who lost loved ones for their sacrifice and courage on that tragic day. This post is dedicated to you!
