September 11, 2001 Lives in our Memory

Never Forget the Real 9/11...

Our parents could tell you exactly where they were and what they were doing on that day in December when Japanese planes struck Pearl Habor. I will always remember that beautiful blue skied September day. It was the kind of day private pilots love to be able to get off work and put in some flying time. Then the sky was suddenly devoid of aircraft as Yamisaki's towers collapsed and the Pentagon burned. In Shanksville, Pennsylvania an airliner crashed into the ground.

We were under attack. We prayed. Firefighters and members of NYPD did their jobs... they were heroes! They were our fellow Americans.

You would think that the events of September ten years ago, like the attack on Pearl Harbor, would remain in the forefront of our National narrative. Sadly, there are many who would rewrite that narrative to Exclude the Events of 09/11 [click to read]. ht/Lynn
