We Will Not Forget

I was going to prepare a tribute on this day in remembrance of the 9/11 tragedy, but IwoCPO could not have said it any better.

This from Craig Conroy at the Calgary Herald,

“I was actually sitting in my basement watching the whole thing unfold,” he recalled. “I remember thinking how is there a fire in the World Trade Center? It doesn’t make any sense. Then the second plane hit. Then you realize it’s an attack on the U.S. and on New York City. It was unbelievable to see those buildings fall, that you wouldn’t ever think would come down because they sort of symbolize New York.”

“There’s bad things and we have to get through it,” he said. “There is another day. Terrible things happen and you try to move forward and do your best. It’s not that you ever forget and you never want anything like that to happen again, but you definitely you’ve got to move on.”

A KK reader sent in this…

You will see the clips of that horrible moment seven years ago today, but never forget those who lost their lives on that day and the families they left behind! And regardless of your politics, always be grateful for those that have fought and are fighting for our freedom. May they reach a point where the fighting is not needed and there’s peace on earth.

God Bless!

The reader also points out a CNN Memorial.
