Anyone over the age of 23 or so will remember where they were this day in 2001. May we never ever forget those who were cruelly slaughtered. Though there is plenty to rant about concerning those terrible attacks, let’s just focus today on remembering the nearly 3,000 people who perished from their direct effects, including 343 firefighters and 71 law enforcement officers, and the scores more who have perished since due to exposure to the dust and toxins around the World Trade Center location.This was not just an attack on the United States; it was an attack on the world. In addition to 2,600 Americans who lost their lives that day, the lives 372 citizens of more than 90 other countries also came to an end. As an American, a human and a Christian, I offer a prayer that God will comfort the families of the victims today and always – time may lessen the pain, but it will never replace those who were lost. I can personally attest to that truth, for what happened on September 11, 2001 set in motion a series of events that led to my parents’ home-going two and a half years (and 4 days) later. So, as we remember today, let us purpose to keep remembering day after day, year after year. We owe it to the victims and their families.
