Have you forgotten…that on September 11th, 2001, the United States of America was attacked and over three thousand civilians were murdered?
How we vowed to never forget…the scores of brave men and women who lost their lives that morning in heroic efforts to save their fellow Americans.
How can we forget…our troops who are still on the frontlines fighting a global war on terror to not only protect our freedoms, but the freedoms and human rights of others around the world?
And have we forgotten…that our enemy is devoted to a wicked belief system that still justifies the destruction of our culture and way of life?
As freedom loving Americans, we must do all that we can to ensure that we are vigilant and that our leaders seek our protection. We need to be educated and informed so that we never again witness such attacks.
On this 14th anniversary of 9-11, Americans will pause once again to remember and to honor the fallen of that terrible day. We will offer our respects by uniting in remembrance of those whom we vowed to never forget – the 2,998 innocent people who perished. Of those who perished, 415 were police, fire and rescue workers. As panic struck the nation, the brave responded without hesitation, selflessly giving their lives in a historic act of true heroism. We will remember the sacrifice of these fallen heroes and celebrate the men and women who continually choose to protect and serve our nation today.
Let’s not forget…and let us remember to pray for one another and to pray for our nation not only on the anniversary of 9-11, but everyday. It is vital to the strength and preservation of our families, our community, our nation’s future and the survival of our God-given freedoms.
America Bless God
God Bless America!
