September 11, 2001, a day of tragedy, horror and heartbreak. For some, it seems like yesterday, still present in their mind. For others it is, unfortunately, fading away. There is a fine line between moving on and forgetting. While we should move forward, by no means should we forget.
It is a solemn day full of hard and painful memories. Memories that should not be forgotten in the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We lost a lot that day, especially lives. Those lives lost, no matter how far in the past they were, should be commemorated, and we should still honor them.
We should never forget the horrors that we faced here, in our home. After the incident first happened, everyone talked about never forgetting it, always remembering. It was even put into history books.
But now, today? Now should be spent remembering, commemorating and respecting the horrid events that took place and the lives that were lost. We should be respecting the fallen, never forgetting them. Respecting them.
So today take a moment to remember. To be thankful for everything and everyone you have in your life. And never forget what we lost today 13 years ago.
