Today is the 9th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks and I wanted to say a few things and remember what happened that fateful day.
September 11, 2001 was the day our world changed forever and it will never go back to the way it was before that day. Over 3,000 people lost their lives in an attack that would rattle the American people and bring us closer than ever before, at least it did for a few years anyway. Now nine years later very little has been done to rebuild, yeah the rubble has been cleared away, but nothing has been built there aside from a memorial that few people visit. Now I'm not going to get political and complain about the lack of progress on that site or the politics behind any rebuilding efforts, but you'd think in 9 years something would've happened, right ?
America came together that day. Only one thing mattered that day, we all were Americans, no matter if you were rich or poor, strong or weak, young or old, you were an American. Many people lost loved ones that day and people were changed. I, for one, still have nightmares stemming from things I saw on the news footage that day, but my nightmares are nothing compared to those suffered by folks who were there when it happened. They went through what can be considered a living Hell.
I guess what I really want to say is please don't forget the events of September 11, 2001. Don't forget the people who lost their lives that day.
Remember 9/11/2001 forever.
Thank you and God bless America.
