Thousands lost their lives or loved ones in the tragic event and many others subsequently lost their health even their Faith. However, all Americans lost something very profound on that tragic day, our peace of mind. We will never feel as safe and secure on our own soil as we did prior to that day.
Regardless of your race, creed, color, religion, political stance or belief in conspiracy theories, please take a moment of silence and reflect, pray, mediate or just plain remember that day:
- The First Responders that died or were injured trying to save others
- The Doctors, Nurses, Aids and other Hospital personnel that tirelessly worked to help the endless stream of injured and traumatized people
- Those that were left behind with young children to care for by themselves
- Those that watched helpless as their co-workers and friends tried to jump to safety from the burning buildings
- The Passengers of UA Flight 93 that banded together knowing they would not survive, but diverted another catastrophe
- The people at the Pentagon who had to protect our military headquarters while taking care of the aftermath of the attack
- The Service Animals that worked feverishly to rescue people that couldn’t be saved and some even perished or were traumatized beyond help
- All of our country's leaders who were faced with an unheard of situation and had to make split second and life changing decisions and have had to live with them
- All Americans who watched in horror as the event unfolded on National TV
- All those that still suffer from the effects of the calamity after 15 years have gone by
Let us never forget that our country is not so great that it couldn’t be invaded on our soil. We must do everything in our power to protect the freedoms that our forefather’s fought so hard for and that the victims of 9/11 died for. We need to make our country SAFE again. We need to make our country GREAT again. We need to make our country WHOLE again.
Bow your heads and remember those that perished on this day in 2001. God Bless them all. May they rest in peace.
