Twelve years ago today, the men and women getting ready to go to work at the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, or boarding planes for the West Coast, didn’t know their lives would change forever.
The Heritage Foundation’s Amy Payne offers a few reflections in today’s Morning Bell:
That day will forever serve as a generation’s reminder of the fragility of life. Today, we give thanks for those who survived. We remember those who were lost in the horrific terrorist attacks. And we salute all the heroes who set aside their own safety in the chaos of that day to help their fellow Americans—whether firefighters, police, emergency responders, or strangers in the crowd.
We will never forget.
