September 11th Ten Year Anniversary



There are some anniversaries we look forward to celebrating and to toasting.
But the 10th anniversary of September 11th is not an anniversary
we look towards with great anticipation.

September 11th will forever and always be
 a day of solemnity, prayer, and reflection.

On this 10th anniversary of 9/11 
we commemorate, pay tribute, and remember.

We remember the blue sky...and the calm that preceded chaos.

We remember where we were and what we were doing.

We remember feeling disbelief, fear, anger, and confusion.

We remember the 2,977 innocent men and women who were tragically killed.

We remember the men and women who sacrificed their lives to save others.

We remember friends and loved ones left behind to cope with the pain and sadness.

We remember those who have died from 9/11 related illnesses.

We remember our military men and women who defend our freedom.

We remember our patriotism.

We remember our resilience.

We remember to never be defeated.

We remember to never forget.
