Let us also remember the togetherness we felt. We wanted to be close, to be united, to protect the children as teachers, felt close to the parents of our classroom children, we shared our desire to be with our loved ones, and questioned what the future was going to be like. There was a sense of unity with us all as I'm sure there was in New York as well as all around the nation.
May we as a country remember that it didn't matter what social status you had, your wealth, or the color of your skin. We were all Americans together in this tragedy wanting answers and preparing for more danger knowing we were all going into this as a united front. We were going to rebuild, we were going to love our neighbor, and people got down on their knees and thanked the Lord for their safety. It brought out the best in us whether we want to admit it or not amidst a terrible tragedy. We were being Americans together.
So on this day may we remember America the great, to love one another like there's no tomorrow, and praise God for this day and every other day forward as we remember the fallen heroes that have given it to us!
