The day our nation changed.

I am not going to tell you what I was doing that day, it doesn’t matter.

What does matter is what that day meant to America.

Its the day our comfort zone disappeared. Its the day when we realized for the first time since Pearl Harbor that we are vulnerable.

Its the day of heroes.

Firefighters, police officers, Military personnel, average men and women, people like you and I. Its the day when every one of us who could turn on a TV, look out over the NYC skyline or had access to a radio tuned in to listen, to watch and to cry.

Its been 12 years since that day. Kids have been born that will never know what that day truly means having never experienced it, and I am thankful they haven’t.

The image posted is the most meaningful image of that tragedy to me.

It doesn’t need a story, it is powerful enough without any words.

Never forget, always remember.
