We Will Not Forget
There isn’t really much I can say about the events of September 11, 2001 that hasn’t already been said time and time again. I will say, however, that in my 27 years of my time here on earth, that was the most horrific day of my life. I was nowhere near New York, DC or Pennsylvania when those jets went down, but the mere idea of our country being under attack was unheard of to me until that day. Sure, I’d seen the Oklahoma City bombing, and the deal with the bomb at the Atlanta Olympic games, but this was the largest scale concerted effort of anyone launching an attack on my country in my lifetime.
I still remember the morning it all happened. I remember the faces of the people around me, and the shock and disbelief they portrayed. I remember the fear and panic that set in on everybody that day. I remember how everything seemed to just stop in this country, and focus on this event.
Those terrorists got what they wanted that day (Well, except for their 72 virgins or however many it was their god promised them), but they haven’t seen the last of us…
