I just wanted to take a few moments just like most people on this day to remember all of those whose lives were affected in some way by the tragic events that took place seven years ago today. I would like to honor the memory of all of those that died on this day and the days following as a result of what took place on this day. The needless loss of those that were so close to us but that are now so far away is painful but something we must live with as individuals and as a country. Whether it was a family member, friend, co-worker, family of friends or a friend of a friend, I believe everyone was touched in some way by the events on that fateful day seven years ago.
It is so strange but I, just like everyone, can remember where they were and what they were doing on that morning seven years ago. It is like one moment in time that just stands still and never moves. It is like a photograph of a small piece of our history.
So I would love to say to family and friends of everyone who lost someone on this day seven years ago, I am so sorry and I share your loss. Just like so many that felt the effects of 9/11, I lost a dear friend as a result of this day’s events seven years ago today. My friend Craig who passed away in an automobile accident on 9/12 because he could not fly to the destination because of grounded flights, I would consider a victim of the events of 9/11. The only way we can honor those who lost their lives as a result of such heinous acts, is to live our lives to the full as Americans and never forget our loved ones and never forget what happened on this day seven years ago.
It’s ok to remember the pain because if you can’t feel pain then you really can’t be alive. The pain of this day runs deep but our love for each other and this awesome country should run much more deep. So on this fateful day in September seven years ago we were dealt a hard and severe blow to our comfort and security that we feel as Americans, but it woke us up to what a cruel and dangerous world we live in and what we must do to protect ourselves and our way of life. So our loved ones did not die in vain but their sacrifice has shown us how precious life is and how blessed we are to live in a free, democratic society that stands for truth and justice. So I will never forget this day as long as I live. September 11, 2001, a day to remember everything good about living a free life with those we love and to honor those who are no longer with us today but still live that free life with us in our memories and in our hearts. 9/11, a day to remember!
