Respect and remembrance
Ask anyone old enough to remember 9/11/2001 where they were when they heard the news of the attack, and they will vividly remember exactly where they were and what they were doing. Many will recall sitting in a class, driving to work, sitting in their officce, turning on the television or radio, or perhaps pouring their morning cup of coffee. We remember the shock of what took place. We remember how many lives were lost. We remember how we cried, because we had no idea what would happen next. And in the wake of such tragedy, we came together united. Because no matter our differences, we knew we were stronger together. Even though it’s been over two decades since this world event blasted into our consciousness, we still mark the day and remember.
