I cannot imagine the horror that was felt by those who lived, worked, visited or had family or friends inside the Twin Towers on that fateful day six years ago. My heart can only go out to them on this day of remembrance.
Let us not only morn for those who were lost, but also celebrate the lives of those who made the ultimate sacrifice in trying to aid the wounded and search for survivors. The NYPD, NY Fire Department and all of the EMT and rescue personnel who acted so valiantly, without regard for their own safety, trying to save people they never met. You are all heroes.
Finally, let us all take a minute to thank, honor and remember those brave individuals in the planes over New York City, Washington, D.C. and Shanksville, PA who made the ultimate sacrifice of trying to prevent the carnage intended by their terrorist captors. Their bravery is the stuff of legends and their sacrifice cannot and will not be forgotten.
Please, take a second out of your busy day to honor those heroes and remember that Freedom isn't free.
