Remember

11 Sep

Last year, I wrote about what I was doing on September 11, 2001. We should all take a moment to reflect today – forget about healthcare debates and Congressmen and football games. Remember what happened 8 years ago. Remember the heros, remember the families whose lives forever changed, remember for those who weren’t given the option to.

Here is a photo gallery of the timeline and events of that day.

“War has been waged against us by stealth and deceit and murder. This nation is peaceful, but fierce when stirred to anger. This conflict was begun on the timing and terms of others. It will end in a way, and at an hour, of our choosing.”
-George W. Bush, Speech at National Cathedral, September 14, 2001

“Time is passing. Yet, for the United States of America, there will be no forgetting September the 11th. We will remember every rescuer who died in honor. We will remember every family that lives in grief. We will remember the fire and ash, the last phone calls, the funerals of the children.”
-George W. Bush, November 11, 2001
