Just as if it was yesterday, I remember waking up at 6:30 on the morning of September 11, 2001 in Venice, California... as usual I turned my television on to see the happenings on the news... I never knew that, that morning... my world, our world... well... my life and yours forever will be changed...
I will always remember...
I will never forget...
“Are you guys ready? Let’s roll!” ~ Flight 93 passenger Todd Beamer, apparently as a signal to other passengers to attack the hijackers, Sept. 11.
"Today, We’ve Had A National Tragedy”- George W. Bush – Remarks at Emma Booker Elementary School. Sarasota, Florida – delivered 11 September 2001, 9:30 A.M. EDT
“Freedom itself was attacked this morning by a faceless coward and freedom will be defended.” “We will not tire, we will not falter, and we will not fail.” - ~George W. Bush
"This mass terrorism is the new evil in our world today. It is perpetrated by fanatics who are utterly indifferent to the sanctity of human life, and we the democracies of this world are going to have to come together and fight it together." ~ British Prime Minister Tony Blair, Sept. 11
"Our enemies have made the mistake that America's enemies always make. They saw liberty, and thought they saw weakness. And now, they see defeat." ~ George W. Bush, President of the United States.
Americans long to be united. After 9/11, we all just wanted to be one nation. Not a single American on September the 12, 2001, cared who won the next presidential election. ~9/11 Quote by Bill Clinton
Courage does not always roar. Sometimes it is the quiet voice at the end of the day say, I will try again tomorrow. ~ Maryanne Radamacher
You have two hands, one to help yourself and the second to help others.
Obstacles are those frightful things we see when we take our eyes off our goal.
"If we learn nothing else from this tragedy, we learn that life is short and there is no time for hate.'' said Sandy Dahl, the wife of Flight 93 pilot Jason Dahl.
I saw a terrible tragedy and yelled at God, "How could you let such a thing happen? Why didn't you do something" A little while later, God's answer came: 'I did do something. I made you.'"
"Those who believe in God know that evil and death do not have the final say." -Pope John Paul II
"Out of the depths of sorrow and sacrifice will be born again the glory of mankind." - Prime Minister Winston Churchill
We shall never forget
We shall keep this day,
We shall keep the events and the tears
In our minds, our memory and our hearts
and take them with us as we carry on.
Blessings to all!!
270 days to go...
