NEVER FORGET

We all remember where we were that fateful day. The day the planes crashed and collapsed the Twin Towers in New York City. The day the Pentagon exploded. The day the final plane crashed into that field. We all remember that day. Even though I was a child when this occurred, I was affected by it. You know what day I'm talking about: September 11th, 2001. The day America will never forget. First responders lost their lives protecting and rescuing others. Innocent men, women and children died. This attack was the single largest loss of American life on American soil. The one event that brings Americans closer together, regardless political affiliation, is this day. Out of any day celebrated, we remember this day above the others. Why? Because we as a country were affected. The entire world was affected. Remembering the attacks of this day isn't just to remember the victims, although that was the main reason to remember. We remember the attack on the free nation, the United States of America.

I wasn't originally going to do this post (really last minute thing), but I could feel my heart pulling for my to discuss this. Everyone remembers where they were. You may have been at work, you may have been home with your children. Either way, you know EXACTLY where you were. My mother said she remembers when her father called her in Brooklyn to say the towers were hit. She watched on the news as it collapsed. She said she couldn't do anything after that. This is such a heartbreaking day. Remembering the victims who lost their lives is hard to think. I have seen videos of men and women who called their loved ones to say how much they loved them and their final goodbyes. I almost cried watching them today. One story I remember hearing was of a man who was wearing a red bandanna. He heroically and selfishly ran up and down the stairs to save his fellow Americans, and tragically lost his life. He was one of the responders who lost their life saving others. On America's Got Talent, an artist on the show did a beautiful, moving tribute to the first responders at 9/11.

When Ilhan Omar said, "Some people did something," in regard to 9/11, this was so insensitive and disgusting. Because she has to be "politically correct" about her own religion, this bugs me (and others) to no end. How dare you call the largest loss of American life as some people did something? Call it for what it is: Islamic terrorists murdered innocent lives. Not surprising she says this about 9/11, and still cannot denounce terrorist groups. She even tweeted today about 9/11, the horrors of it, and how we cannot forget the victims who lost their lives. She's right! We cannot forget 9/11, but we cannot forget what she described 9/11 as. She was not there that day. Those who were (first responders and victims) saw innocent lives die. I'm leaving the link for a video from TPUSA from first responders who lost comrades, who saw people jump out of the towers and kill themselves. These politicians who defend Omar's statement is insulting the victims, and those who protect us. The Left are so anti-America, they would rather blame anything else BUT the terrorists. Look at the New York Times. Had to delete their tweet after blaming, get this, AIRPLANES for the attacks. I'm going to use the same analogy as I did with gun control: A GUN CANNOT SHOOT WITHOUT SOMEONE BEHIND THE TRIGGER. And guess what? Same with an airplane! The Left know they cannot try to blame anyone else for what happened 9/11 because there is no other way to! Only as Islamic terrorists hijacked 4 planes, destroyed buildings, and ended innocent lives. The Left will change history to fit their narrative. Too bad America isn't putting up with it!

9/11 is a horrific day that we shouldn't have to remember, but because of these terrorists, we do. The victims who lost their lives never thought this was going to happen, and it's a horrific day to remember. Watch this emotional video of some of the passengers' last moments, I almost cried watching it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EEogeIIOJzU We all know where we were that day. After the debris cleared, my entire family's asthma increased. We all began to suffer with it heavily. This is just one of the effects of this day. So many firemen/first responders died from lung cancer from the debris and smoke. This is a day that will live in infamy for Americans. For the entire world! This wasn't an attack only on Americans, this was an attack on the free world. If politicians choose to protect Muslims who sugarcoat 9/11, you spit on the graves of those who died. Their sacrifice was for nothing. As much as I dislike him, George W. Bush on the grounds of 9/11 was beautiful. "I can hear you." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x7OCgMPX2mE That spoke so many volumes. How Rudy Giuliani handled this situation was incredible. America grew close as a nation. Not because of political affiliation, but because everyone felt this day. This day did not tear America apart, but bring us closer together. If I'm honest, I was very emotional writing this post. I know I'm not the only one who feels this way. To the first responders, military, and others who fought for America, thank you. To those who lost their lives, we won't forget you. To the victims' families, my condolences to you all. On this day, 18 years later, we still haven't forgotten. We always remember. NEVER FORGET 9/11.

  3. Excellent article as usual Hannah. I didn't see the towers fall on TV. I watched it from my livingroom window. But you were just a little one who didnt even know what was happening. We MUST NEVER FORGET!
