Today marks the 10th anniversary of the worse domestic attack on U.S.soil, that this country has ever seen. I don't think a single person alive today can forget where they were when these events took place. We could go on forever recounting the stories and experiences of that tragic day. Without a doubt, in a split second, this country, and the lives of each person changed forever. We have changed in many ways, the way we do business in this country. While there is so much that can and should be changed and / or improved, we are, I believe, a much more alert nation. Those whole idiologies and beliefs do not match our democratic way of living, tried to criple and destroy the spirit or our nation with these attacks. What they discovered, as did our nation and the world for that matter, is that the spirit of America and it's citizens could not and would not ever be destroyed. Whatever separated us as individuals before 9/11 was not seen in the weeks and months that followed. We were united by our human need and desire to help one another regardless of race, color, or creed. It was mankind helping mankind. Death knows no prejudice. It comes to any and all at some point in our lives. It came to nearly 3 thousand service men and women of the FDNY, NYPD,PORT AUTHORITY PD. NYC-EMS and many others on that tragic day. Regardless of race, color,creed, they all died selfishlessly doing what they had sworn to do, protect the lives of the people of NY. While memorials are a great tribute, the best way to honor these men and women who paid the ultimate price, is to remember what great service they performed day in and day out, and pay tribute to those who continue to put their lives on the line daily. Let's hope and pray that this nation and it's first responders never have to experience an event or a loss such as we witnessed on September 11, 2001, 10 years ago today.
