|It is hard to believe that it has been 10+ years already since 9-11-01. On that day America suffered a terrorist attack on the World Trade Center Twin Towers, the Pentagon and on Flight 93 that crashed in Pennsylvania. Seems like it was just yesterday. Our hearts went out to all of the families and friends of the victims, our firefighters and heroes of that terrible day, and still do. Some of us may want to forget what happened that day, but most of us can't forget. Nor should we, in my opinion. I know it definitly opened my eyes to America's vulnerability which I hadn't really thought about until then. It made me realize life is way too short and made me much closer to my family & friends and not to take anything for granted. I hate to admit it, but it's a shame that it takes such a thing to make you stop and think. I know I'm guilty!|
