A Poignant Recollection of that Fateful Day
This script below was taken from Ricks World Sedona written on the 10th anniversary of this horrific event. See the entire post as well as pictures of that day from Newsweek magazine in a very poignant video.
America will never be the same after that Tuesday in September back in 2001. I would hazard to say that no country in the world has been the same. Ten years have gone by but for many, it seems like only days. There are those people who have been touched and scarred deeply by the event; family members, close friends, and co-workers, who never returned home that evening. Since then, over 6200 servicemen and women have lost their lives defending our freedom; freedom from tyranny and terrorism. Some of these people go to sleep every evening and wake up every morning with the unbearable pain of what they had to endure. Our hearts and prayers go out to these brave souls who continue to fight day in and day out to survive the scars they received from the events of that day.
For the people who were not directly scarred by 9/11/01, many may only reflect back when there is an anniversary. As Americans, we will never forget. It is incumbent upon us to ensure that future generations understand and appreciate our history and what can happen when evil forces try to take your freedoms from you.
