9/11 - 12 years later

I, like many Americans, will never forget that day. September 11, 2001. I remember getting to the TV in time to watch the the second plane crash into the World Trade Center. I remember sitting in front of the TV and watching over and over again the planes crashing into the towers. I remember having a math word problem that day talking about the tallest building in the world. The Word Trade Center was one of the building listed. But it was no longer there, it was no longer one of the tallest buildings, because it was no longer even standing...

September 11th was a day that my generation and the generations before me will never forget. But yet, on a daily basis, it has been forgotten. That day, 12 years ago, was not a day that our country fell apart. Instead, it was a day that the country stood together. We stood in faith and the communities gathered around each other. We held each other up. One of the most memorable quotes from that day was, "United we stand, divided we fall". 
We believed this, so we stood together, we stood united. I believe that statement is the same today as it was 12 years ago. We need to stand together and support each other.
