Remember 9-11

On this day 10 years ago the September 11th attacks took place. At 8:46am American Airlines Flight 11 crashed into the North Tower of the World Trade Center. At 9:03am United Airlines Flight 175 crashed into the South Tower of the World Trade Center. At 9:37am American Airlines Flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon and at 10:15am the official notification of United Airlines Flight 93 having crashed into a field at Shanksville, PA was reported to the world.

These attacks were awful and should never be forgotten but it's also important to remember that these attacks were carried out by radicals not connected to any state or government. The people responsible were loyal to madmen who only cared about carrying out an agenda of terror and hate. Their ultimate mission was to further the rift between our people and our beliefs. Are we going to let them win?

I believe America is great and will always have the upper hand against our enemies as long as we stay resolved and keep up a strong National Defense with a focus on who our enemies actually are. Let's not lose focus by going after the wrong people or worse.

Let's remember September 11th so we may show respect for those who were murdered and those who ultimately gave their life trying to rescue those who remained. Let's also not forget about the untold number of deaths due to war that proceeded. Let's not allow September 11th to become a day where Americans pit faiths against one another in order to prove some kind of superiority. This will only widen the gap between us and play into their hand.
