May We Never Forget

Usa, Ground Zero, United States
In the United States, Sept. 11 has become a day that haunts the nation of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. Since the attacks, the day has been called Patriot Day and serves as a day to remember those who lost their lives. The day was passed by Congress on Oct. 25, 2001 and was signed into law by then President George. W. Bush. 

 "Now, we have inscribed a new memory alongside those others. It’s a memory of tragedy and shock, of loss and mourning. But not only of loss and mourning. It’s also a memory of bravery and self-sacrifice, and the love that lays down its life for a friend–even a friend whose name it never knew." -- President George W. Bush

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.  John 15:13

Love these quotes. Yes it was a day that changed the world. We went to see Come From Away a couple of weeks ago...the Broadway play about the little town of Gander, Newfoundland, Canada that took in so many of the stranded folks on planes that day. Newfoundland is my home province and I'm very proud of how we helped out in such terrible times. So much good in the world which we should try not to lose sight of.

Thank you for the very nice remembrance of a day in our history where triumph over loss prevails, and a tribute to the heroes of that day.
