Yesterday was 9/11. It was an incredibly sad day 15 years ago when 3,000 innocent victims died because of a terrorist attack on the United States.
It is still a sad day, and a day to remember. But when we remember, we show our fellow Americans and other people around the world how we continue to band together and pray for those who lost their lives (and the families of those who lost their lives) because we have the freedom to live the way we do.
I feel that 9/11 should be observed as a holiday for all of our citizens to show that we are a nation of strength and faith. It’s a day to remember WHY we are different, and why the people who died on that day will never be forgotten. September 11 will always be the day we realized that we now live in a different world, and that no matter what, the ones who want to force us to give in to their beliefs will not win. We will win, because we won’t ever change what made our nation great.
So no matter where you live, remember not only 9/11 but the moments of tragedy in other countries. We need to keep fighting for what we believe in, and NOBODY will change us. Nobody!! We are strong. We are good. And we are ONE. It’s true.
