Today we take a few moments from lusting after Android, wondering when our cities gets 3G and remember a fateful day. September 11th in one way or another changed all of our lives, it brought all of us together and reminded all of us just how vulnerable we are. September 11th will always be remembered as a tragedy, a day that altered the course of our nation forever. We should also remember it as a day when our nation came together and said in one voice we stand united with the workers of the World Trade Center, workers in the Pentagon and the families of Flight 93 victims. We should remember the candlelighting’s that took place in cities across the country, the American flags that were decorated trees and houses across the nation in numbers never yet seen. We should remember the heroes that ran toward the danger, willing to trade their lives to help another, we remember the members of law enforcement and fire departments across the country who drove to New York and said today our baseball rivalries and our political affiliations don’t matter, we are one. We should remember on that day that America stood with one voice, no matter the age, no matter the skin color, no matter the gender that we stood shoulder to shoulder as one and said we will never forget.
Please feel free to join our discussion and talk about where you were that day.
“Time is passing. Yet, for the United States of America, there will be no forgetting September the 11th. We will remember every rescuer who died in honor. We will remember every family that lives in grief. We will remember the fire and ash, the last phone calls, and the funerals of our children. “
– President George W. Bush, November 11, 2001
