Never Forget Them
I've been spending the day thinking about 9-11 and the impact it has had on my life, my city and my country. I worked for 14 years across the street from the Trade Center and spent many months helping my company clean up and recover from the attack.
While it has been five years since the attack, the memories of that morning for me are as vivid as ever. Television news reports cannot convey the images, sounds and scent of the death and destruction of that day.
I can also recall how the fear and confusion of that day was gradually replaced with a sense of responsibility to step up and support the recovery effort. For a while New York and the country were united in a way that I could not have imagined before the attack.
At the risk of starting a political name calling thread, it saddens me to see the way we have gone from a country that was united by this vicious and tragic attack to one that seems to be tearing apart over how to answer it.
While I'm sure we all have opinions about the war on terror and how we as a nation have dealt with the attack, let's remember the impact this day has had on thousands of families that lost relatives. These people are our fellow citizens and continue to need our prayers and support.
This post might be a little too heavy for the site and it has nothing to do with our cars, but I had to tell someone how I feel.
God bless the victims of September 11, 2001 and God Bless America.
