September 11, 2001 – Twenty Years On

Twenty years ago. Wow it’s hard to believe that 9/11 happened twenty years ago. American and world history changed on that day. This was a time that people cannot and shouldn’t forget. Make no mistake it was about terrorism but like anything there is always more to the story.

Heroes rose from all walks of life to rescue and save lives. They also came to find survivors and recover those who were lost in the chaos and destruction. It was about America coming together in community to lift-up one another during the dark days that would follow. A lot of people were there to pick up the pieces and sort through the devastation.

It is my hope that nothing like this will happen again anywhere on Earth. Let there be peace. Let love rule.

Remember New York, Arlington, VA and Shanksville, Pennsylvania on 9/11 and other days too.

  1. It feels like everyone lost a bit of their innocence as we saw those horrors, doesn’t it? Maybe it’s because I was very young (I was 18 and on my first year in college) when it happened, but it’s like something broke inside of all that were watching in horror as it all unfolded. May we never have to mourn such a terrible tragedy again.
