9/11: I will never forget

It has been five years since our nation was attacked, and in some ways it seems like September 11th, 2001 was yesterday.

I will never forget:

  • Hearing on the radio that a plane crashed into the World Trade Center
  • Watching in horror as the news showed the second plane crash and both towers collapse
  • The evil required to plan and carry out this attack
  • The number of families that were destroyed in a single day
  • The heroism of the firefighters, police officers, and all others who rushed to the scene with little regard for their own personal safety
  • The anger I felt as people on the other side of the globe were cheering such a tragic loss of life
  • The helplessness I felt as the Pentagon was attacked and cowards started sending Anthrax-laced letters
  • That this attack strengthened the resolve of our nation to protect our freedom at any cost
  • The pride that I feel to be a citizen of the United States of America
