This is about September Eleventh.

Tomorrow. Tomorrow is the seventh anniversary of September 11th. It is the seventh anniversary, but it feels like it just happened. I remember comming home from school and my mom saying that two very bad men did something horrible. I remember dozens of paniced phone calls. I remember teary-eyed conversations, telling us of the people who died. I refuse to forget the tragic storie that I have heard first hand. I will never get back the nightst that I couldn't sleep, because I was too sad or scared. Tomorrow is the anniversary of a day when so many were lost: loved ones, friends, teachers, parents, colleges, neighbors. Tomorrow is a day when our country needs to mourn our losses and celebrate the survival of the people and families it touched.
Today. Today is September 11th. Today is 9-11. Today is the day the towers fell, the plane crashed, and the pentagon burned. Today is a day of rememberance. It is a day of reverance, pride, thankfullness, and anger. It is a time to thank God that you're alive. Today is a day when I pray. I pray for a neighbor. I pray for a friend. I pray for the lost. And I pray for the families who lost. Today I thank God that some people survived. I thank God for being with my family, my cousins, and loved ones. Today, I try not to be sad, but to be greatful, and celebrate the lives of the ones who died. Today is a day, where I pay tribute to the soldiers, fire fighters, and police men who risk their lives for us every day. Today is a day where we tog a tragic event and tried to make the best of it. Today, we have a stronger, more unified country. Today, we have people fighting in Iraq. There is not one person in America who can honestly say they have not been effected by this horrible thing.
September 11th, a day to remember. A day of promises, reuniting a lost nation. A day we will never forget. After the smoke rose and the clouds creared, a stronger nation emerged. Every time I hear of a story, reguarding this devestating day, I get the chills. This is a day that gave me a reason to pray. I will never forget it. I will always be thankful for life because of it. Now, there is a change in our world. The New York sky line is emptier. The lives of many have been lost. The unity our our country has been fixed. The hearts of many have been broken. In my eyes, this day is truly unforgettable.
