Today we remember September 11, 2001. Ten years ago, today, our nation experienced a display of terrorism that will forever be etched in our history. Two planes, taken by terrorists, hit the Twin Towers just before nine o’clock, and less than half an hour later a plane hit the Pentagon. At ten o’clock United Airlines flight 93 crashed in a field in Pennsylvania, it was later found that the plain was headed for the White House. By 10:30am both of the towers had collapsed.
It has been ten years but we have not forgotten, and we never will. Thousands of people lost their lives, millions lost family members and friends. We miss those who we lost, we feel for those who gave their lives to save ours.
We have changed as a nation because of these acts of terrorism. Airplane security has tightened and people are more cautious. Unfortunately, some members of our nation are suspicious of their foreign neighbors, those of different skin colors, and those who practice certain faiths. We are on nation; we shouldn’t be divided by a catastrophe, especially one that occurred ten years ago. We shouldn’t forget and we shouldn’t forgive, but we should embrace the fact that we are a nation who has survived this because of our unity.
Today we celebrate our rebirth and those who survived.
Today, whenever you have a chance, give a moment of silence for those who died in the towers, pentagon, and flight 93.
We will never forget September 11, 2001.
