Never Forget...

... what happened six years ago today. For most of us, the tragic images are etched forever in our minds. I remember having just woken up a little before 6 a.m. PT, watching the local news on KTLA (channel 5) and the reporters talking about a plane "crashing" into the one of the two towers of the World Trade Center. Minutes later, on live television I watched in horror as a second plane came into the picture and hit the other tower. We all know what happened later that morning with the towers' subsequent collapse, the subsequent attack on the Pentagon, and a third plane (headed towards Washington, D.C.), which was heroically downed by it's passengers.

The threat of terrorism is something that we cannot escape. Never forget why our soldiers are overseas fighting the scourge of terrorism, and protecting our precious freedom. Remember that today and every day as we commemorate those that innocently and tragically lost their lives on 9/11/01.
