Remembering September 11, 2001

Looking back to eleven years ago, the feelings of horror and devastation still linger. The sense of not knowing what was happening still enters our thoughts at times. Anger and a desire for revenge still pass our lips when the subject comes up in conversation. We as Americans will never forget that day.

There will be many memorials all over the country today. Prayers will be said, candles will be lit, and songs will be sung. Thousands of people will remember and reflect upon that day in their own solitary ways. It doesn't matter if you attend any memorial service today. It matters that you take some time out to remember and honor the victims of that horrible day.

It doesn't matter if you're a native-born American, or if you've never set foot on the soil. The horrible events of 9/11 could be reenacted anywhere, anytime, against any group of people. Any extremist group, religious sector, or certifiable loon could make 9/11 happen again. Unfortunately, no one is exempt from the hatred of others. Intolerance is too ingrained in too many people.

How do you plan to honor the victims and heroes of September 11th today?
