Never Forget

“9/11 Memorial”
New York City

Twenty years have passed since the infamous attack on the American Nation. The memorial pays tribute to the 2,983 people who lost their lives in the 2001 and 1993 terrorist attacks. We must never forget those who were lost as well as the families and friends whose lives were impacted by the lost ones.

We must never forget about the terrorist events themselves. But we must also look beyond the events and search out the root causes that triggered them. Only by addressing and resolving the root causes will we be able to stop such events from occurring again in the future.

We Will Always Remember

September 11 was twelve years ago.  It seems like it was just yesterday …  It seems like it was so long ago.  Visiting the 9/11 Memorial at Ground 0 puts it right back in front of us.  How could this happen here at home?  Why did it happen?  What are the underlying causes?  What can we do to make sure this cannot happen again?  What causes such hatred?  Can we ever be at peace between all the peoples of the world?  So many questions … so few answers.

We will always remember and never forget what happened.  We must also devote our efforts to resolve the underlying causes that led to this act.
