It was ten years ago today that coordinated terrorist attacks on the United States profoundly changed our lives.
Even though a decade has passed, writing about this event brings a lump to my throat and tears to my eyes. Four years ago, I blogged about a discussion I had with my students about September 11, 2001; another posting, from 2009, includes more of my memories of the day. I will let that stand as my record of a pivotal moment in history.
A few weeks after 9/01/01, our high school students gave a concert as a tribute to those who responded and those who died. While I'm not normally a country music fan, one of the songs they performed then still affects me whenever I hear it.
I AM proud to be an American. However you choose to remember this day, let that be your slogan and your comfort.
God bless the U. S. A.
