One Thing We May Have Forgotten from 9/11
September 11, 2011 Leave a comment
No need to “remember,” as for many we have never forgotten the attacks on the United States of America that occurred on September 11, 2001. We remember where we were, we remember the emotions that we felt that day, or the lack thereof due to the shock. It was 10 years ago, but it seems like yesterday.
…Allow me to make the case for how important it is that we do remember. Certainly the lives lost and the sacrifices made. And something else: I fear our post-9/11 outlook on life has faded all too soon. If you walked into any store or office building or just down the streets of New York City in the dark days and months after 9/11, you couldn’t help but feel a common bond, a strong sense of “happy to see you, glad you’re here” community, and it seemed everyone had suddenly shifted their priorities.
Let us never forget, not only the tragedy of that day, but the spirit that united us. Let’s bring that back.
