11 years

Today is the 11th anniversary of the worst foreign attack in this nation's history. On this day in 2001 terrorist pilots used commercial airliners as missiles to attack the Pentagon in Washington, DC and the World Trade Center towers in NYC. Another airliner crashed in rural Pennsylvania after passengers took a stand to prevent their flight from attacking another target.

On moments like this as usual I avoid any coverage on TV, especially if they play any footage of the planes crashing into the World Trade Center or the collapse of both towers. It was still a dreadful day that had been played on TV over and over on that day. It's something I prefer not to have etched in my mind, but understand that it's etched in the minds of so many others.

Today I remember all victims whether they perished in the events of that day or the people that they've left behind especially friends and family. They're as much victims as anyone else.

May we continue to fight the evil, that plan and execute attacks such as this!
