I remember ten years ago today very vividly. Huddled around a tv set. Eyes glued to the screen. The terror, the grief, and the shock. People lined up at gas stations for as far as the eye could see. The world flipping upside down. Not a second of that day did anyone think of schoolwork. We all kept thinking . . . where would they strike next?
Today is a day of both commemoration and celebration. Commemoration of those who lost their lives in the tragedy. Celebration of ten years passing without a similar attack on our soil. We have our dedicated military and security forces to thank for that. The wake up call was answered. Dare I say, we feel safer today than at any time since that Black Tuesday ten years ago. For ten years, freedom has prevailed over terror.
God Bless America.
