Today we remember one of the most horrific events to take place on American Soil. On September 11, 2001, nineteen men hijacked four U.S. commercial airplanes. A total of 2,977 people were killed in New York City, Washington, DC, and outside of Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Today we look back and mourn the lives we lost, but we also look at the growth and resilience that our country has shown.

When brought to our knees from evil bestowed on us, we have shown and will always show, Americans will rise more incredible than before as one nation.

September 11th will always be a call to action, that all neighbors reflect that freedom is not free, that we never forget those lost, and show the world we continue to stand together through the gratitude of having each other as thy brother and sister.
