There are a lot of mixed feelings as far as 911is concerned. Some people embrace all the recent news and media coverage andtake a second to watch. Others change the channel and are “tired of hearingabout it”. It’s all over the TV and media. But regardless of what you believe,whether you think it was a conspiracy or not, many people are still hurting from the effects of this tragedy and fromlosing their loved ones.

911 is brought up every year because weswore we would never forget what was done to us as a people and anation.  We swore we would never forget how they tried to bring us downand how we all pulled together to help one another when it meant the most. Thisis why it’s important that we be reminded of what happened rather than brush itaside or try to forget what happened that day now ten years past. It takes verylittle effort to take a minute our of the day and remember that day, the livesthat were lost, and those who are still suffering because of what happened.
That’s what this day means to me. A day to beclose with my family, to tell them how I feel about them and be thankful thatI’m alive, I’m an American, that I am free. Thank you to those whosacrificed their lives (people and animals!), their loved ones, to the peoplewho are hurting today, I pray someday you can find peace.

Below is a 30 second video worth watching of a tribute to 911 that Beyonce sang. 

And we can’t forget our 4 legged Hero’s who sacrificed their lives!

I was in school when America was tested, and I will NEVER forget.

Where were you that day?
