All this week, we have seen the stories of 9/11 being told on the news media, evoking different emotions in different people. Some of you don’t want to see it, others feel very sad seeing it, and still others find a lot of questions in mind as you witness the extent of evil human beings could commit. 9/11 is a defining moment for this generation, just as the assassination of John F. Kennedy was the defining moment of the previous generation.Today is the tenth anniversary of 9/11.
A couple of the slogans you hear frequently these days are “Never Forget” and “United We Stand.” Have you ever thought about what these slogans really mean to you? How do we never forget 9/11? In other words, how do we remember this day so that it will honor the lives of the innocent victims, the lives of those who died heroically in the attempt the rescue those who were trapped in the towers—the firefighters, civic leaders and law enforcement officers, and the sacrifices of our service men and women in the subsequent wars against terrorism.
