Today marks the 17th anniversary of September 11, 2001- the day that changed America forever. Clouds of smoke and debris filled the streets of lower Manhattan, blazes of fire were seen from miles in Arlington, and an act of heroism was taken in a field of Shanksville, Pennsylvania. President George W. Bush addressed the country from the oval office at the White House on September 11th,2001 stating, “Terrorist attacks can shake the foundations of our biggest buildings, but they cannot touch the foundation of America. These acts shatter steel, but they cannot dent the steel of American resolve.” This day may have claimed the lives of almost 3,000 people and left a numbness of disbelief, but amid evil, our country came together and fought back. Everything about being an American changed that day-United we Stood. Stores ran out of flags, millions donated blood, thousands joined rescue efforts, there was a special meaning behind the word American that was ingrained in each of us. In honor of the 17th Anniversary, we have composed these photos. Photos that let us remember how raw, real, and heart wrenching the memory still holds. As we continue our daily routines, let’s stop to pay tribute to the lives lost on September 11th. Now and forever we will remember the heroes and the families affected by these attacks. May God Bless each of you as we pray today. Please take this time to honor those who died, those who have served, and those who carry on.
