9/11 We Remember To the Memory Of Never Forget

~ :: Posted Image :: ~


9/11 has always been one of my favorite days of the year. Not because I am necessarily happy, but because of the attitude and the respect that people show (hopefully) on this day. It's a day of remembrance, a day of prayer, a day of memory, a day of sadness, a day of reflection, a day of respect, a day of honor, a day of fervor, a day of comforting, a day of charity, a day of love. A day to remind us of what happened, to honor those who suffered and died that day. A day to remind us to honor those that work each and every day, even to the point of sometimes giving up their lives, in order to try and protect the United States of America. This day reminds us that we must show love. To the families, to the people, to those who fight for freedom, to politicians who work to keep us safe even when we might disagree with them on other things, to those who give their lives, to those who cannot be with us today, to the people of the United States of America, and to the people of the world. Today is a day of love. It is also a day of remembrance, sadness, but also of hope and strength. Hope that a tragedy like this will never happen again. Strength that we are resolved, that nothing will break our spirit.

I'd like to thank everyone that has posted about this day, on BZPower or otherwise. I'd like to thank those that have said a prayer today in honor and remembrance of this. I believe this is one of the most important days of the year, because it is a day to remind us. Remind us of love, of those lost, of those fighting, of simply everyone. To remind us that peace is what we all need to strive for. I have seen many beautiful posts about today, and it honestly warms my heart to see that people care as I do. I'd like to end by sharing one of my favorite posts I have seen today:

Karen and I wanted to take a moment to honor those who lost their lives and whose lives were changed forever on September 11, 2001. We were all changed that day, but there are many who gave so much - many who paid the ultimate price - fighting for freedom on that day and the days that followed. We honor them today.

Eleven years later, we still vividly remember the heroism and courage of those who fought back against the terrorists. That day was a dark day for our country, but demonstrated what is great about America: Nothing can break the spirit of our great country.

Today we honor those who sacrificed on the planes, in the World Trade Center towers, in the Pentagon, on a field in Pennsylvania, our intelligence communities, and of course, the men and women in uniform who fight for our freedoms.

We will never forget.

-Rick Santorum



Please remember. Please do not forget. And may God Bless America.

~ Andrew
