It is commonly said that the last people who can scientifically remember the events of September 9th, 2001, were in kindergarten class that day. Well, I was one of those students, and I remember the day quite vividly. We were let out of school early by sobbing, frantic teachers, and, in a rush of patriotism, my parents went out and bought a flag pole and their own Old Glory and erected them in our backyard. To my younger siblings, that was the day we got our flag pole. But to me and the rest of the world who remembers it, it’s a reminder of how anything could happen to anyone, anytime.
A gorgeous memorial has been built to remember that day, and the date 9/11 will forever remain in American’s minds as one of a horrible attack on their country. But now, on this day, we take the time to come together and remember those who lost their lives, who saved others, who survived, and who joined the military in response to this devastating event.
