Today is NOT a day for politics…NOT a day for partisan bickering…for today is a day when we together bow our heads and remember those lost on 9/11…for this is the day when demons from hell walked the earth in New York City, at the Pentagon, and in a field in Pennsylvania

Today is the day when those on a doomed airliner decided they would forfeit their lives so that others might live…a day when two small words…’Let’s Roll’… became ingrained in America’s psyche…

Today is a day when we remember true heroes born and true heroes lost…all in the blink of an eye…

Today is the day we hold Memorial Services and cry for the 3000 victims who awoke so full of life on a beautiful sunny day NEVER to return home…NEVER again to kiss their husbands or wives…NEVER again to hold their children…3000 victims NEVER to be forgotten by those left behind…

Today we are still at war with those who pierced America’s heart…America’s soul…who took away our innocence but who could NOT take away our hopes… our dreams…our resolution and determination…for today new buildings rise towards the heavens…a sign in simple concrete and steel signaling that America survives…that America will NEVER surrender to evil.

America  will survive because America must survive…always and forever…NOT just for us here and now but for future generations who will come to know that on a beautiful sunny day so many years ago a spirit was awoken in everyday Americans…a spirit of survival that can NEVER be taken away.

And so on this most solemn of days as we remember and honor the 3000 victims of 9/11 let’s NOT forget the four victims of another  9/11…Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty, and Tyrone Woods…for their sacrifice must also be part of our prayers.

3000 heroes plus four…God Bless them all as now they are home safe in His arms…NEVER to be forgotten…always to be honored…always to live in our hearts…forever and a day.
