We Will Always Remember

Time is passing. Yet, for the United States of America, there will be no forgetting September the 11th. We will remember every rescuer who died in honor. We will remember every family that lives in grief. We will remember the fire and ash, the last phone calls, the funerals of the children. “ - President George W. Bush, November 11, 2001

"The planes were hijacked, the buildings fell, and thousands of lives were lost nearly a thousand miles from here. But the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon were an attack on the heart of America. 
And standing here in the heartland of America, we say in one voice: 

We will not give in to terrorists;

We will not rest until they are found and defeated; 

We will win this struggle: not for glory, nor wealth, nor power, but for justice, for freedom, and for peace; 

So help us God."

--Tom Harkin

Thanks for the reminder of what's most important in life - especially on this day of remembrance.

Thanks also for stopping by my blog and becoming a follower. I'm returning the favor.

Those images are still haunting. I almost stopped watching the video after a minute, but then decided to watch it all. We must not forget.
