Today, as most of you probably already know, is the 14-year anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center in New York. I’m too young to remember anything about this day (in fact, according to my mom, at the time the attacks began, I was still asleep. 😉 So I like to say that I basically “slept through it” XD ).
Many people died from this terrible event-2,977, to be exact. Thousands more were injured. And firefighters, police officers, Red Cross workers, and EMTs (emergency medical technicians) were working tirelessly to put out the flames, find those who were missing, help all the people in need, and take care of those that were hurt.
Even if you don’t have any memories of September 11, please keep all of the people who died that day and their families in your prayers. Please thank all of the firefighters, policemen, and others who responded quickly to these attacks, as well as those brave men and women who are fighting to keep our country safe. Above all, thank God for protecting us, both during the attacks and after.
We will never forget September 11, 2001. God bless America!
