The Anniversary of 9-11

Every American remembers exactly where they were on that fatal day seven years ago today when two commercial airliners flew into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, quickly followed by another commercial airliner flying into the Pentagon just outside Washington, D.C. In all the confusion everyone held their breath waiting for the location of the fourth commercial airliner that no one knew its location. When we learned this airliner had crashed somewhere in Pennsylvania instead of its intended target, the White House, America collectively released that breath.

Today once again, America grieves for all the innocent lives lost on this tragic day. Today, once again America, we mourn and we cry. Today, like every day may God Bless America.

Tomorrow America will reflect on what has been done in the seven years since 9-11, and what still needs to be done.
