"Time is passing.
Yet, for the United States of America,
there will be no forgetting September the 11th.
We will remember every rescuer who died in honor.
We will remember every family that lives in grief.
We will remember the fire and ash,
the last phone calls,
the funerals of the children."
-President George W. Bush, November 11, 2001
Time has passed, eleven years and I can still remember every detail of that horrible day.
I'm pretty sure all of us can recount most of the events of our personal lives that day.
I can only imagine how it is for those families and friends that lost a loved one,
remembering it every single year, but having the opportunity to honor them as well.
One thing that I remember that day more than anything,
is that we came together as a nation. It didn't matter our political views,
our religious beliefs, our color, our race.
For a time our nation felt as it were one with a simple yet poignant goal,
to help one another.
A good reminder of a day that will live on in all of our hearts.
