    It is a day that is etched in all our memories, and the anniversary should be a day of respect and remembrance for all those who tragically lost their lives

    September 11, 2001 is a date that should never be forgotten. We should never forget the grief we hold for those that were murdered in New York and Washington.

    We should never forget our outrage focused on those that perpetrated such a cowardly and murderous act, and the multitude that cheered the senseless slaughter innocents. 
    The passage of time and the recitation of history should never weaken the relevance of this day and it’s affect on our convictions. 

    We should all have deeply instilled in us a respect for the foremost heroes of that day, the passengers of Flight 93. Americans with the fortitude, strength of character and honor, who chose to fight rather than allow their attackers to succeed.

    We are all indebted to these people for their sacrifice, repayment for which can only be made by the commitment to continue the fight that was forced upon them.

    The Sword they picked up that day should never be stilled until the people that have chosen to be our enemy and have sworn to destroy us, are vanquished.

    The only words that need to remembered are “Let’s Roll”

    To forget brings one only dishonor and shame.

        Indeed, those two words are etched in my memory.  Ordinary Americans, badly outgunned and in a situation they were totally unprepared for, still able to assess what was going on and fight back any way they could.  That they were able to do so effectively, winning the day at the cost of their own lives, was incredible.  Our ancestors, the designers and builders of our country, would have been proud.

    Grief over earth and oceans abounding, and America's majesty astounded, such are the books should say, How our hope and Osama's hate, victor of terror and fete of joy displayed, as in Manhattan dying lay. And though our light of glory set, nor we or world shall forget the terror of that name; and oft shall united heroes rise, the sons and daughters of our pride, through justice fight the flame.
