We will never forget...
I also want to remember how we came together as a country the following day.
We weren't Democrats or Republicans, Liberals or Conservatives.
We were simply human beings coming together, united as one.
We were Americans.

No, we won't.
I have never forgotten.
Just like I have never forgotten Pearl Harbor, either.

My father started his military career fighting in the Korean War, to give an idea of how old he is. He remembers stories of things beyond our time, from what he was told by older family members.
We continue to survive.
An event that sears into your memory. I remember exactly where I was and what I was doing when the attacks began.

I can guarantee you I have not forgotten. As I look around it seems most have, and I am ashamed for them.

Ask a young person what they know about the events of 9/11/2001 at The World Trade Center Towers, Pentagon and a Field in Shanksville, PA and see what their answer is.
Same with Pearl Harbor, . . . Ft. Sumpter, . . . the battleship USS Maine, . . . Concord and New Lex, . . . Okinawa, . . . Iwo, . . .
They just DON'T know.
