Today is the seventh anniversary of the attacks that took place in New York City, the Pentagon in Washington D.C., and in the skies above Pennsylvania. Today we remember not only those whose lives were cut short, but those whose lives were changed forever at the loss of loved ones, and the men and women who selflessly gave their lives and their time in aid of the suffering.
Take the time today to reflect. We as Americans are in the middle of a Presidential election, and it is often easy to get caught up in things that we disagree on, rather than to focus on the strengths that we all possess as American people. Today let us remember the heroism, courage and the passion for freedom that lies within each American. Let us celebrate, but never forget the meaning of this day in history.
