empire state building 3

Being an American and living in New York, it is hard to overlook today’s date, September 11th. On that eventful day years ago, I remember being in school when the teacher announced the first plane crashing into one of the World Trade Towers and then minutes later telling us of the second. It was a day that would change American history, and at the time being so young, I did not truly understand the magnitude of what had happened. Now that more years have passed than I was old at the time, I know the impact that day had on history, both now and in the future. That day will forever be in my mind as if it was yesterday. It is a day no American will forget, especially those who lost loved ones. And, it is a day heroes were made and patriotism was shown. God bless America!
