The ten year anniversary of September 11, 2001 marks a day of remembrance, appreciation and hopefulness. We will never forget the people who sacrificed their lives for our freedom and we will always be thankful for their courage and strength.
On September 11, 2001, America experienced a tragedy unlike no other our country has ever witnessed. This horrific event changed the way Americans lived their lives. Terror was brought to our doorstep, places and things that we were accustomed to became symbols of fear. The safe net that we thought was there to protect us had failed, and as a country we were in a state of vulnerability. This unforgettable day severely weakened America, but as a whole, the people allowed the events of 9/11 to bring them together. America is and will continue to be a resilient country.
