Remembering September 11, 2001 Today and Always

The U.S. remembers September 11, 2001–14 years later. How much our nation was changed…and our entire world. An entire generation, the Millennials, has grown up in the shadow of this specter of terrorism. Thank you to Tony Burgess for posting this on his blog in memorial of this event. How will you remember? #neverforget

news-2On this day we remember 14 years ago the events of September 11, 2001 and how it changed our lives forever. We should never forget those who were lost of all races, nations, religions. People were going to work to make their lives better and support their families. Let us never be afraid of those who come to harm us. Let us be in community with those who foster peace, love and reconciliation. Today should be a day of honoring the survivors, mourning the dead and thankful for those who have and continue to keep us safe. Be with the people of New York City, Shanksville, PA and Washington DC as well as our nation and the world. Let there be peace on Earth.

Let us remember that day in American history today and always.

      • I was 11 years when Pearl Harbor Happen. I remember the angry, the disappointment and the feeling that one of my uncles was on leave from his construction job on Wake Island. My generation is probably the last that have actually memories as my younger sister and brothers don’t have them. The horror of a President of the United States could be killed. I was ironing when it happened. Nine/11 we were campground hosts.

  1. I remember where I was that day. I was in a college math class.
    When I first heard what was happening, I had difficulty believing what I was hearing.
    Hoping somehow it was a mistake.
    The lady sitting at the desk behind me immediately broke out in tears.
    Her husband had kissed her goodbye and gone off to work a few hours before the news of the attacks.
    He worked at the Pentagon. Using her cell phone, she immediately tried to call him.
    The phone lines were jammed. She couldn’t reach him.
    Sadness and panic everywhere.
