9-11 Nine Years Later
Nine years and tears beyond counting later, we remember that
it was only Nineteen men. Suicide members of a group called Al-Qaeda who were
Islamist terrorists that hijacked four commercial passenger jet airliners.
They were the catalyst that
united the hearts and souls of the American people.
It was an America transformed.
A United America. A country that proudly flew the flag that represents freedom.
A country that mourned and healed together.
Nine years later, apathy has risen it’s ugly head.
Discord, fear and mistrust abound.
I pray for a spark of unity in America, healing to those who have suffered loss.
A heart felt thank you to our hero’s and American troops fighting
paying the price for our freedom.
Keeping the evil and terror at bay.
We must Never Forget. We have a responsibility to remember.
The attackers that morning flew American Airlines Flight 11 into the north

Please consider being involved. So we never do forget.
