How we honor September 11th

It’s hard to believe it has been 10 years.

Much like my parents generation will always remember where they were when JFK was shot, my generation will forever remember where and what they were doing when they heard the first plane crashed into the World Trade Center.

On this, the 10th Anniversary of an attack that shook every American to the core, we are tasked with finding ways to honor all of those that not only lost their lives but also the men and women of our military who continue to fight for our safety and freedom.

Regardless of where you live you will be able to find some type of memorial service to partake in. For us in Oregon, here is a link to a list of such events happening around our state.

If you plan on going to an event today, wonderful, but even if you don’t, just know that the best way we can portray our support is to never forget what happened.

To never forget the innocent lives of those that were killed in the World Trade Center Towers, on AA Flight 11, and United Flight 175.
To never forget those who lost their lives in the Pentagon and AA Flight 77.
To never forget the bravery of those passengers on United Flight 93 who stood up to the hijackers on their plane who, by sacrificing their own lives, saved countless others at the Capitol Building.

And let us never forget how a tragedy that could have caused us to crumble, brought forth an explosion of volunteerism and unity, all for the love of our country.


  1. It was certainly a day that changed the world. We will not be attending an event today, for several reasons, but we will always remember that day and choose to make the world a better place because of it.

    A day that I will never forget as long as I live. My heart goes out to everyone affected by this atrocity.
    We must work together as an international community to ensure that something like this never happens again. Why can’t we learn to live with each others beliefs and feel the love for one another……..
