"Terrorist attacks can shake the foundations of our biggest buildings, but they cannot touch the foundation of America. These acts shatter steel, but they cannot dent the steel of American resolve. America was targeted for attack because we are the brightest beacon for freedom and opportunity in the world, and no one will keep that light from shining." - George W. Bush
Thirteen years ago, we were affected as a whole. What happened on September 11th, 2001 will always be remember as one of the most devastating days in our nations history.
From tragedy comes strength. We saw a nation stand together and rebuild. The American people as a whole mourned but did not falter. We were shook to the core but did not miss a beat when it came to helping families who lost loved ones.
While the lives lost on that day should be honored every day, take today to pay respect to the lives lost and the families who had to carry on without their loved ones; reflect on how that day impacted your life. Take a moment out of your day to tell the people in your life how important they are to you and be grateful and proud to live in the United States of America
We will never forgot the devastation that day brought, but we will continue to grow, rebuild and stand strong.
