We Will Never Forget

It seems the media would like us to forget the terrorists attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. Look at this picture and this video and never forget why we are fighting a war on terror.

For more photographic reminders visit September 11 News.

Never Forget:
~ The horror of passenger planes used as bombs
~ The innocent passengers on those planes
~ The terror the passengers experienced in their last moments and the bravery they showed in fighting the hijackers
~ The 200 people who fell to their deaths from the World Trade Center
~ The hundreds of police officers and firefighters who died trying to save others
~ The thousands who died that day in New York City, NY; Washington, DC; and Shanksville, PA.
~ The senators and congressmen who stood side by side that night singing "God Bless America," all partisan politics forgotten
~ The strength and leadership of New York City Mayor Rudy Guiliani and President George W. Bush
~ The thousands of families who are still grieving for their lost loved ones
~ The courage of a nation and its soldiers who continue to fight terrorism wherever it occurs
"I will not forget this wound to our country or those who inflicted it. I will not yield; I will not rest; I will not relent in waging this struggle for freedom and security for the American people."

~ President George W. Bush
Address to a Joint Session of Congress and the American People
Sept. 20, 2001

Yeah, That day was really terrible... I was watching the TV on that day. And that news suddenly came in. I didn't understand what happened at first sight. Then I read the article in the Newsweek. I was really shocked...
You know, just yesterday Sept.11, in Japan we had a general election at here... I think it's ironic.
