NO words needed...



Op-ed:
Remembering September 11th
By: Diane Sori


Today marks the 11th anniversary of the day islam declared war on America.

Today is the day 3000 (mostly) Americans were MURDERED by 19 muslims on the orders of a madman.

Today is the day when four jetliners were slammed into The World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and into a field in Shankville, Pennsylvania.

Today is the day when the two simple words, 'Let's Roll,' .redefined the meaning of the word 'hero.'

Today is the day we must NEVER forget for today is the day America changed forever.

Today is the day ALL our lives took a course few of us could ever have imagined.

Today is the day that the unbelievable became reality as buildings fell and hearts were broken.

Today is the day we honor ALL those lost and comfort those they left behind.

To the families, to the loved ones, to all those that death touched I say, 'try to remember that the souls of your loved ones are now and forever in the warm embrace of God, where they are safe from further harm.’

Simple words from my heart but sometimes simple words speak louder than anything else.

September 11th shaped me into the person I am today.

September 11th woke me from a somewhat apathetic sleep and forced me to see a reality that some still don’t see even today.

September 11th turned me into a patriot fighter for my beloved America before I am anything else...before I am anything else.

September 11th is a day to remember that America is still the greatest nation the world has ever known.

September 11th has become part of our collective souls; a part of our very being; a part of what makes us unique as Americans for on that day we felt pain like never before, we cried, we grieved, and yet we survived...we survived together.

Today as we remember that horrific day of eleven years ago we just might let a very small smile cross our lips as we’re still here...America is still here...and America will survive because America must survive for America represents the hope and dreams of those lost that day and in their memory we carry on...and in their memory we will NEVER forget the day that changed so many lives forever.
