Remembering September 11 - Ten years on!
Pictures of 9/11/2011
Americans everywhere are reflecting and in some cases commemorating the horrific events of 9/11/2001.
It is a day that will never be forgotten for centuries to come. Not only did it shake America, the entire world was shaken!
And that 'shake' has change the way we live today, all of us, unless you are living in some cave in the figurative 'TimBucTu'...just think about how security (especially at the airports) have changed.
It has also changed the face of the world; we now all have a brand new lens, don't we?
My heart goes out to all the families, friends and relatives of those who perished, but more so, the entire America and in fact, all well-thinking people across the globe.
From what I read and heard, several events and activities are planned across the US to commemorate the events. For many this is a worthy reflection, but for some, it will revive and awaken the fear, anger, pain, heartache and distress that they went through.
That said, I like this; a quote from the USA Today: "This 10th anniversary gives the nation an opportunity not just to remember the victims, as it should, but also to reassess the threat.” After all, evil will always continue to seek ways to destroy good.
America and my American peeps, on behalf of all Jamaica, we share your memories and pray that the American people will use this to strengthen their resolve, find greater unity and common purpose as they seek to rebuild a powerful nation.
We love you. God Bless America.
