9/11: Never Forget

September 11, 2014

13 years ago, America changed in a way we never would have imagined.

Despite not having the best childhood memory, like most of us probably do, I still vividly remember this day. It’s was a day of horror, sorrow and devastation – a day etched in our memory unlike any other we’ve ever experienced. Despite the darkness that overshadows this day every year, I believe September 11th 2001 is a day to never be forgotten.

Thank you to those who serve to protect America both here and overseas.

Your sacrifice is never forgotten – thank you.

“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, the funerals of the children.” – President George W. Bush, November 11, 2001

      Neither will I. This day was something that affected us all even if we didn't lose loved ones, we lost something.
