Take a moment today and consider the following:
- How lucky we all are to live in this great nation.
- The sacrifices made to keep it that way.
- The tragedy of lives lost.
- What we can all do to make it better.
To me, the truly sad part of this date isn’t remembering what happened when the towers fell, it’s realizing what hasn’t been done since then. That we’re angrier over an Islamic community center being built than that we still don’t have a proper memorial in the crater.
I don’t think the United States changed on 9/11, but rather our true nature came to the surface.
