11 Years…Never Forget

Time is passing.  Yet, for the United States of America, there will be no forgetting September the 11th.  We will remember every rescuer who died in honor.  We will remember every family that lives in grief.  We will remember the fire and ash, the last phone calls, the funerals of children.  – President George W. Bush

Please don’t forget.  Don’t forget what this country has gone through.  Don’t forget the importance of freedom.  Don’t forget that we are one nation under God.

Take a moment today to reflect on September 11, 2001.  Say a prayer for those who are still grieving, eleven years later, for the loss of loved ones.  Pray that their aching hearts be filled with some sense of peace.  And pray for the future of this country that we love so dearly.

This is our home.  It’s the land of the free.

United we will stand.

As Lee Ielpi, a retired NY firefighter who lost his firefighter son on 9/11, said today in an interview, we move forward not with hate in our hearts, but with hope and with the thought that we will make a difference.
