Patriot Day: We Will Never Forget

Wednesday, September 7th, 2011

Some events are so powerful that every detail becomes permanently etched into the minds of people who were there. A few are significant enough to impact the entire world. People will often share stories about how these moments affected their lives. These stories are passed on to every generation, because they must never be forgotten.

One of the most unforgettable and agonizing moments in American history began on September 11, 2001.

It started like any other morning. People woke up and prepared for a fresh new day. And then, without warning, everything changed. We heard the shocking news that a commercial airliner had crashed into one of New York’s Twin Towers.

The whole world stopped. We watched in horror as footage of the devastating crash was broadcast on every channel. We wondered what could have gone wrong. It wasn’t long before we learned the truth. Four planes had been hijacked. And things were about to get much worse.

Most people have issues with others from time to time. . It’s human nature. But sometimes even minor disagreements are allowed to fester for years. They can ruin great relationships and tear loved ones apart. If we really look inside ourselves and ask which is more important – being “right” or saving the relationship – then we’ll probably want to fix things fast.

August 25 is the perfect opportunity.
