Don't apologize. We should mourn our fallen and remember why we fight the war on terror. The moment we forgot is the moment they win. What's most unfortunate is that a national tragedy that United the nation 18 years ago has become politicized. Without going down that rabbit hole, they even politicize it at my school. The old administration at my school would do a presentation schoolwide mourning with the families of students and staff who lost lives ones in that attack. The new administration refused to even allow a moment of silence.
Thanks for posting. I still tune into The History Channel every year. Today was no different. This morning it was a day just like it was on 9-11-2001 where I live. Sunny and warm. I live not too far from the Flight 93 crash site. Flight 93 flew overhead our area about the time the first tower was struck. Those passengers were great & brave heroes fighting back. Never forget. Never again!
I was taking my kid to Taekwondo after work. We were at the stop light near the Veterans Memorial in my town. A truck coming the opposite way turning left in front of us had a huge American flag flying from a pole in the bed (common sight in the South). The setting sun hit it from behind just right. That.. with the Veterans Memorial flags just to the right... Wow. My eyes teared up.
We had the right of way (going straight), but the car in front of me yielded to the Truck. I am glad he did. What a sight. What a way to cap off the day.
