Even though most people were not directly affected by the events of September 11th, 2001, I'm sure it stirs many thoughts and emotions in all Americans. While getting ready for work, I watched Fox News' tribute to the 9/11 victims this morning. I stopped what I was doing and stared at those images that I've seen countless times. The same feelings come flooding back: terror for people in the towers, anguish for families that will never see loved ones again, respect for men willing to run into such destruction to help people they don't even know, and a burning anger against those attacking my country.
My prayers go out to those who were personally touched by this attack and to those brave men and women in harms way working to protect all of us from another 9/11. I ask that the citizens of this nation and most importantly those we elect to lead, never forget that there are those in this world willing to do anything to destroy us.
