On this day 12 years ago, tragedy, fear and numbness hit us all. Take a moment to honor the victims and their families on this anniversary of the worst attack on American soil on September 11, 2001. I bring back a column I wrote five years ago:
The days and the years have passed since that fateful morning on September 11, 2001. I, as every American does, remembers exactly where he or she was in that split second that changed the World forever.
I was producing “Coach and Gresh” for Sportsradio the Score. Instead of the entertaining and informative sportstalk show that we normally were, we were instantly turned into talking about the worst tragedy to ever his the United States homeland.
From those fleeting first few seconds to now seven (now 12) years later, almost every Americans’ live has changed in some shape or form. Whether you had a loved one who lost their life to someone you knew or just someone whose heart grieves like all of ours do, the World is surely different.
No, you may be thinking what can I do to make a difference? The answers out there are infinite. Yet, the one thing we can ALL do no matter what is that we NEVER forget what happened.
From the movie “Lilo and Stitch,” I give you the line that we in my family try to live our lives by – “Ohana means family and family means no one gets left behind or forgotten.”
I ask that no one EVER forgets and today, if not every day, say a little prayer. From CNN, here’s a list of all 2,977 victims who lost their lives on September 11, 2001.
