12 years ago today, America changed forever. We lost citizens on our home soil without ever firing a shot. 2,996 lives lost. Over 400 of those were First-Responders who died trying to save their fellow citizens. Lets us not loose sight of that tragic day and the cost we paid. We lost more than just American lives, although that would be tragic enough by itself. We lost a piece of security and trust in our human race. The comfort and peace that came with living the American dream. We lost some innocence as well.
Take a moment today and reflect back to that day, a day that soon will fade much like December 7th, 1941 into the history books.
We experienced it first hand and need to keep that alive in the hearts and minds of those too young to know what America was before and has become after. Remember those who paid with their lives so that others may live.
John 15:13 says "greater love has no man than this, than to lay down his life for his brother".
Amen God Bless America!
