September 11, 2001.
11 years. Today, the term "never forget" is often used to mark the anniversary. Never forget? How could we.
There were so many things I personally remember about that day. The piercingly clear blue sky will forever be etched in my mind. Listening to the Morning X at my office desk as the first reports began to hit the airwaves. Not fully grasping the magnitude of the event until seeing the first tower crumble.
But what I remember most are the days after.
We weren't republicans or democrats or independents. We weren't conservatives, moderates or liberals. It didn't matter our age, gender, race, or sexual orientation. We were simply Americans. One Nation under God.
How could we forget? I pray that we remember more often.
