Remembering 9/11

Four years ago today, the United States was dealt a vicious suprise attack by terrorists. When the World Trade Center fell at the hands of al Qaeda, our country was forced into a war it did not choose to fight. Nonetheless, brave and courageous Americans have risen to the occasion and given everything they have to our cause. The sacrifices that have been made are staggering, and we owe our freedom and well-being to those who have been willing to fight for it.

Today we should honor the servicemen and women who are around the globe defending us, as well as those who have given their lives in the effort. We must also not forget those civilians who were victims of the horrible attack on the World Trade Center. Pray for the families who have lost loved ones and for those who are still involved in the fight. Consider a moment of silence, as the president did.

And never forget that feeling it gave us all when our country was attacked on September 11, 2001.
