9/11, Never Forget

A day to never forget, even for the hockey world, as it lost two innocent lives. Let us pray for the victims of 9/11, and pray that our future won’t witness such horror, especially for our future generations. As always, I recommend to listen to two songs that give me the chills. Alan Jackson’s “Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning)”, and Daryl Worley’s “Have You Forgotten”. Yes, they are countrish, and I am not a big fan of country music, but every 9/11 I watch videos of the event, look at pictures, listen to these songs, and pray for the victims, the people that lost their loved ones, and for us, so that I will never forget that day.

God Bless the world, and the USA.

Hello hockey fans! Isn’t it a joyous month of July? Things got exciting for two straight weeks, my country won the World Cup and some good changes happening in the NHL.
