A Day to Remember

If asked, there are probably only a few days in history that all of us would most likely remember exactly where we were and what we were doing when we heard the tragic news . . . the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in Dallas, Texas on November 22, 1963; the explosion of the Space Shuttle Challenger over the Atlantic Coast off  Florida on January 28, 1986; and the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center Twin Towers in New York City on September 11, 2001.

While all these events are equally tragic and all deserve prominent places in our country's history, nothing seemed to effect us as a Nation more than the attack on the Twin Towers.  In all the madness and chaos, we truly became one Nation united where strangers helped strangers, never once considering "what's in it for me".  And because of the tragedy, good or bad, we became a stronger country with more common goals.

Please take a moment tomorrow morning as you begin your day to reflect and remember all those who lost their lives or loved ones on that horrific day 11 years ago.  And while remembering, please say a special thank you to all those first responders that gave so much of themselves . . . emergency medical personnel, firemen, policemen, and military personnel alike.  Thank you for all your efforts in all you did on that sad day and all that you do everyday of our lives.
