A Day We'll Never Forget

September 11, 2001

A warm, Indian Summer morning....not a cloud in the sky. 
Only one word can sum up the start of that day....Perfect. 
That was until men harboring so much hatred against
Americans boarded the four ill-fated flights.
2,976 innocent lives were so brazenly taken that day.
A callous act meant to bring America to it's knees.
Instead, it proved to demonstrate to the world
what this country is all about.
We are
"The Land of the Free, Home of the Brave"
Americans banded together during the crisis & forgot about any
differences they may have had with one another.
 "United We Stand, Divided We Fall" 
Al-Qaeda was certain the attacks on 
America would fuel a divide between Americans.
They expected their attacks to be the beginning of the fall of 
The United States of America.
Instead it sparked Americans to come together in solidarity.
September 11, 2001will forever be etched in our minds
It was a day that shockingly demonstrated to us that the freedoms 
we so often take for granted
are not favorably looked upon by some.
A constant reminder, that freedom is not free.
