The Twin Towers

In Remembrance on Patriots Day

It’s been 19 years. 

That means it has been long enough to have an entire generation of men and women that weren’t even alive on that horrific day. There are men and women that are going to be voting, and they never felt the pain of that day; men and women that fight for our military that never felt the hurt of that day; men and women that are now the pilots that fly our aircraft, and they don’t even know the pure evil that came into light on that day. 

It’s been 19 years.

On September 11, 2001, 2,753 people were killed when American Airlines flight 11 and United Airlines flight 175 were hijacked and flown directly into the north and south towers of the World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan. 184 people died when American Airlines flight 77 was hijacked and crashed into the Pentagon. 40 people died when United Airlines flight 93 was hijacked and crashed into a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. The target was unknown, but the crash is believed to have occurred after the crew and passengers decided to try and retake control of the flight deck after it was hijacked. 

It’s been 19 years.

Nearly 3,000 American citizens lost their lives as a direct result of the airplane hijackings. Nearly 3,000 made up of mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, sons, and daughters were killed to make a statement. There have been countless more that suffered some sort of consequence from this terrible tragedy – children growing up without a parent, children growing up without both parents, spouses becoming widows, parents losing children, and countless friends lost.

It’s been 19 years.

It still hurts. But time is cruel and continues onward. As a nation, we grieved. As a nation, we grew. As a nation, we will continue to remember the men and women that lost their lives for no good reason. Everything changed in a single day. Security at airports has never been the same since. People grew closer. America got stronger.

It’s been 19 years.

America will never forget the horror of 9/11. We will continue to remember those that lost their lives that day. We will be forever grateful for the coming together of all first responders. Firefighters, police, EMT, nurses, flight attendants, pilots, military, and the regular citizens that answered the cry for help from a nation that was hurting, they’re all heroes. Every single life that was lost, is treasured. Every single individual that helped pick up the pieces of a hurt nation is a national treasure. 

It’s been 19 years.

Time seemed to stand still and fly by at the same time. The most diverse city in the world came together to mourn. The most diverse nation in the world came together to rebuild and help our fellow Americans. 

WE WILL NEVER FORGET.
