10 years after.....

This past Sunday was the Tenth anniversary of that horrible day, September 11, 2001. It was the darkest day in the history of the United States. I had tears in my eyes when I realized once again that MANY innocent lives were lost. You never would've realized it unless you were there or know someone close to you that died on that day, but subtle reminders from reading an article or watching TV can make you realized how fragile we are as a country, as citizens and as human beings. I remembered when it happened, many were kidding around saying that it was something that was out of a movie. But, this was bigger than any movie stunts, this was lives of people from all over the country, different names, different races, different origins, all dies because of hatred. In the decade that follows, the United States has been victorious in reporting that we've captured many of the people that was behind the attack as well as known terrorist, but does not make you feel safer living in the United States? There are so many crimes in our daily life as it is, do we really need fright to come from overseas? Nevertheless, like many have said and will continue to preach. we can only control what is in front of us and that we can never be afraid of what lies ahead otherwise they would've have won the battle. RIP to all the mens and womens that lost their lives a decade ago on September 11, 2001. We will always remember!
