10 years ago today our country changed forever. 2 hijacked planes crashed into the World Trade Center and brought both towers down. Another plane hit the Pentagon and another crashed to the ground in Pennsylvania, thanks to the sacrifice and courage of the passengers.
It's hard to believe that day was 10 years ago, as it is still an image so vivid in most of our minds. It was like watching a scene in a disaster movie, with Hollywood type effects and storyline. We had been attacked on our own soil and thousands of our citizens were murdered, due to terrorists under the direction of Osama Bin Laden.
10 years later we continue to fight the battle that was brought to our homeland. In many areas we have claimed victory, including not suffering another attack since that day and bringing Osama Bin Laden to justice. The War on Terrorism has also come at great cost to our nation and citizens, but we remain free and proud to be Americans!
Please take some time out of your day to remember those lives that were lost on September 11, 2001 and the days that followed. Give thanks to our courageous firefighters, police officers and military who responded quickly and bravely, even to the point of giving their lives. They are another example of the American exceptionalism that we celebrate this Patriot Day! Never forget...
