Never Forget?

4:42 PM

It is hard to believe that is has been nine years since the devastating terrorist attacks  on 9/11/01. At the time I remember talking to my mom and she telling me that ten years from that day, people would be more concerned about the color of lipstick that they were going to wear to a wedding, or where they were going to go on vacation than what happened that day. I didn’t believe her, but, as usual, my mom was right.

I was eleven years old, but I remember that day clearly. I will never forget the horror as I sat watching one tower burning and then, as I watched, a plane came from the side of the screen and hit the other tower. At that moment, my life changed. Before, my world had been safe and secure; now, suddenly, it was a place of fear and uncertainty.

Join with me as we tell the world that we haven’t forgotten, and we never will. Never forget, never again.

  1. I was eight when it happened. My dad was home schooling my brothers and I when my mom called from work and told us to turn the news on. I didn't really understand what was happening, just that it was terrible. Now I do understand, and find it hard to believe that a lot of people are forgetting about this.
