it was seven years ago today…

9-11 banner

Seven years ago today, I woke up for work, like any other day. I turned on the TV to the Today show, like I always did, listening to it in the background as I got ready, but not fully paying attention.

Then it dawned on me that something major had happened…something that would change forever how we view the world around us.

Today is the seventh anniversary of the tragic events of 9/11, a day when America’s bubble of safety was pierced by terrorists on our own soil, and launching us into a war we neither wanted, nor could afford. Even today, we are still suffering the effects, from the economy to constant fear of another attack.

But I hope at some time today, each and every one of you will take a moment to remember those whose lives were cut short by the attacks and say a prayer for them, their families and the troops who are still caught in the throes of the 9/11 aftermath.

Let us never forget…

    Michelle, I like how you brought attention to today, it means alot to many peope that we never forget, and that we pay our respects to that tragic day. I was in class the morning it happened, one of the kids came in saying that the world trade center had been hit by a plan, later finding out that it was tarist attacks. As I watched the T.V in horror as those beautiful buildings came down knowing that alot of people were trapped, my heart sank, to his day I still would like to help some how with healing clean up, whatever is needed. I would love to one day visit what is now called ground Zero. The last moment of the world trade center.
