In Remembrance: September 11th

I’m sure we can all pin point where we were, what we were doing, and how we felt the morning of September 11, 2001.

Take this day to reflect on the lives lost on that day; the freedoms and safety that we experience on a daily basis living in this country; the way our nation has risen from the ashes; and, how our generation will move forward in love and remembrance from this point on.

Time is passing. Yet, for the United States of America, there will be no forgetting September the 11th. We will remember every rescuer who died in honor. We will remember every family that lives in grief. We will remember the fire and ash, the last phone calls, the funerals of the children.

– President G. W. Bush

 

 

Never before in our history has America asked so much over such a sustained period of an all-volunteer force. So I can say without fear of contradiction or being accused of exaggeration, the 9/11 generation ranks among the greatest our nation has ever produced, and it was born — it was born — it was born right here on 9/11.

– Joe Biden

If you would like to take part in a 9/11 Remembrance Ceremony, visit Pepperdine University today from 12:15 – 12:45 at Heroes Garden.  The event is free, open to the public, and does not require RSVP.  Also, take time to visit the flags that line the school’s lawn, which represent each life lost in the tragedies that occurred on 9/11. The Memorial will be up through September 23rd.
