We Will Never Forget

May God Bless America.
May God Bless Our Troops.




Like many of our generation, I can remember exactly where I was when I first heard the news of the planes crashing into the Twin Towers. Sitting in Pre-Calculus class, they announced a plane crashed into the North Tower, thinking it was just a freak accident. Soon after, another announcement over the loud speaker stated the South Tower had been hit. It seemed so surreal. Many were riveted to the TV {usually not allowed on} that was in the Seniors' area near the lunch room.

Hearing about the Pentagon crash and then the heroes in Pennsylvania... it was like something out of a movie. America doesn't get attacked, I mean, we're America! Who messes with us? Well, it was a testiment to our pride and lack of vigilance that those terrorists were able to get through and attack American soil.

May this day serve as a constant reminder of why we are at war. Please support our troops. May God bless them and our country. May we never forget September 11, 2001.
