This coming Sunday marks the 10 year anniversary of the worst terrorist attack in US history. On September 11, 2001, terrorist hijacked four passenger planes and flew them into designated targets in the NE. The greatest damage was realized when the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center came down in NY.
Thousands were killed in these cowardly attacks but it made our country stronger and more focused for a time. America learned some valuable lessons that day and as citizens, we came together in a most gratifying display of patriotism and bravery. American flags were hoisted proudly atop the rubble in New York and became a common site on cars, homes, businesses and anywhere that could possibly accommodate the Red, White and Blue.
September 11 should be remembered not only for the lives lost and the innocence ripped away from our young country, it should be remembered as a proud day for all of us. It showed the world how strong a people we are; how we can stand united; how we did not cower from the dangers that waited in the aftermath; and how we fought to regain what we lost that day.
September 11, 2001. Always remember.
