September 11, 2001 The day our world changed

September 11.   I can't hardly say the date without a tightening in my chest.   I will never forget where I was and what I was doing.   I remember staring at the TV in disbelief.   Surely, no one was attacking us like that?    Who would do that?   Who could be so senseless and cruel?

Unfortunately it was deliberate and it was evil.   Pure unadulterated evil. 

But, do you know what I also remember?  I remember the way our country was on September 12th, 13th and 14th.  We were ONE.   We were a country in mourning.   There wasn't any race card being played, there wasn't any discrimination due to sex, there wasn't any "group" looking own on another "group" and judging.   We were American's.   We weren't Ango-Saxon Americans, we weren't African-Americans, we weren't American Indians.   We were American's in mourning.  We were a country unified, not divided.

Can we please get back to that point now?
