September 11th--My Generation's Pearl Harbor

I spent a lot of time trying to find the right videos for today. Something different, but equally as moving as some of those I've seen in the past. I thought both of these were good.

I am grieved today and it is not just over the horrible tragedy we suffered 6 years ago. I am also grieved at how callous and hateful many have become and how they seem to have forgotten we were all attacked that day. This growing conspiracy theory about how 9/11 was an inside job is such a slap in the face to all the victims.

Terrorists attacked us that day and they have caused unending horror for so many people. I watched some videos of 911 calls that day of people who were scared because they were afraid they were going to die. How many 911 operators have post traumatic stress disorder because of what they experienced that day? It seems to me that anyone who experienced and then survived the events of that day had a hard time picking up the pieces of their life.

September 11th is one of those days that anyone who lived through it will remember what they were doing that day. It is an event seared in people's minds like Pearl Harbor or the assassination of JFK. The reason it is so important not to forget is so we don't have to live through a similar event again.

May we never forget!!
