September 11th Anniversary

Today marks the 14th anniversary of the September 11th attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.  I can’t believe it has been 14 years already.  Terrorists hijacked four planes and killed almost 3,000 people on American soil in just one day.  Truly a day that will live in infamy!

As we mark the 14th anniversary of one of the saddest days in American history, let us not forget the families of those who died on that day.  Let us also remember that terrorism is still alive and well. Al Qa’ida, ISIL, Boko Haram, and many others are still plying their trade and committing atrocities all over the world, and yes, even here in the United States.

We must remain vigilant as we mourn the deaths of so many. The terrorists will not relent, because they are driven by one of the strongest emotions of all – hate. I know of only one other emotion that is stronger than that – love.
