9/11/2001 Always Remembered
Each year we take a moment to respectfully remember those lost in the terrorist attacks on 9/11/2001. Each year, we remember, but have we truly wrapped our heads around how this has forever changed how we Americans will look at the world around us?
We try to make sure that our children know what happened and how courageous were those who died in the attacks or who died trying to save others. Fire fighters, police officers, military personnel, both active and off-duty, and just plain civilians who never thought of themselves, but selflessly ran toward danger instead of away from it. They are yet another reason to be proud to be an American. Could these heroes have been any more Christ-like in their actions that day?
What about those daring souls who crashed the airliner they were riding on rather than have the White House targeted by these monsters?
What about the families of all those who suffer as a result of these gut-less attacks on civilians and (largely) civilian targets? These continue to feel the pain of their injuries and losses.
We must NEVER forget to honor them.
