On Tuesday September 11th 2001, the world as we know it was forever changed when four suicide attacks were attempted against the United States in both New York and Washington D.C. Nearly 3,000 innocent people lost their lives that day in the most horrific atrocity imposed on the U.S. by the Al-Qaeda with Osama bin Laden as ring leader. I have two children as well as a niece and several nephews and I am so angered by the fact that they will NEVER know what life was like before 911, before their basic freedoms were compromised! Our generation didn't know what anthrax was or live in fear of bombing or planes being hijacked, nor did we have to ever fathom a member of our family or ourselves becoming a victim of terrorism... The bravery & unity amongst the survivors and those who reached out to help them in spite of the impending danger was the 'hope' that we as a nation so desperately needed to recover from this tragedy and to move forward with aspirations for a better future for the generations to come!
My heart goes out to all the precious lives lost & most of all to the people who loved them ♥
