Where were you when the Twin Towers were hit? That seems to be a common question people ask on September 11th. We remember watching TV all day long. Time stood still. Nothing else seemed to matter. We have vivid memories of that day—the shock, disbelief and grief that rolled through every town in America and the world. We will never forget it. It was a day of deep mourning—mourning that lasted long after the day ended.
Today, on the 12th anniversary, take a moment to remember the thousands who died on 9/11. Remember how America grieved and how we came together afterwards to pay tribute to those who died and to honor our great nation. We hung American flags everywhere. We were united as a country. We honored and supported our military. We appreciated our loved ones and our blessings a little more.
Children born after 9/11 don’t share our vivid memories of that day. Today is the perfect day to tell the story to the children in your life. Teach them about the honorable firefighters and police officers who rushed to the aid of those trapped in the Towers. Teach them about the many Americans who reached out in so many different ways. Teach them about our military personnel who served that day and who still serve to protect our freedoms. Teach them to love and appreciate this great nation and the freedoms we enjoy.[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
