9/11: A Vivid Memory of a Horrible Day
We all have vivid memories of where we were on September 11, 2001.
On that fateful morning, my wife was in surgery at Rhode Island Hospital and I was sitting in the waiting room when the morning television programs switched to viewing the World Trade Center buildings with the then-unconfirmed story that a plane had hit one of the towers.
With a view of only the North Tower from the television camera’s midtown angle, all of us sitting there saw – live – a second plane fly in from the right side of the television screen and not continue to be visible on the left side of the screen. It had hit the South Tower.
Our thoughts and prayers go out again to all of the families who lost loved ones on that horrible day. And our thanks go out to those many Americans who joined in numerous efforts to save lives and take care of the injured and grieving.
We salute all of you with pride, gratitude, and a commitment to never let your memory, bravery and acts of kindness be forgotten.
On this fourth anniversary of that horrible day, we can only benefit from rereading some key speeches (here, here) that remind us how we are engaged in an ongoing war against a treacherous enemy who seeks nothing less than our country’s demise.
Unfortunately, we also face some domestic foes whose actions (here, here, here, here, here) are misguided and dangerous because they fail to accept the enormous evil of an enemy which has been attacking and killing American citizens for much longer than just the last four years.
