Never Forgotten

Posted on the 11 September 2011 by Catem @ImCateM
Never ForgottenToday as the nation remembers one of it's most tragic of days, I too am remembering.  Like so many have posted on Facebook today, I don't remember exactly what I was doing last week but I DO remember exactly where I was and what I was doing when the news came that day.  I remember watching in horror as the second plane hit the second tower.  I remember seeing the devastation as they fell, the scenes in Pennsylvania and Washington DC.
Today there are still no words to describe the shock and disbelief our nation felt from those moments.  Our hearts are still stricken with grief for those lost and still in awe at the bravery of those who rushed in to help even though it meant that some gave their lives in doing so.
What I want to remember more than anything is how this country came together; how differences were put aside and common goals were set and achieved; how neighbor once again helped neighbor.  Why does it take so much loss and pain to pull a nation together?
My challenge to you today, while memorials and ceremonies are being held, while we as a country remember that terrible day, is that we also remember who and what we should be to each other; how we should treat each other on a daily basis and not just in times of tragedy.
