What to say?
Seventeen years ago today, my parents were getting ready to head off on a cruise to celebrate their 3rd anniversary.
Seventeen years ago today (though they didn’t know it), I was growing in my mother’s womb.
Seventeen years ago today, life changed for an awful lot of people in the United States–and, I imagine, the whole world.
I don’t know how to write about such an important event. I’m just a high school student who was the size of a raspberry when all of this happened. But I wanted to say something, just to remember, because what happened on this day, seventeen years ago, is important.
So what I say is this: Remember this tragedy. Remember those who died that day–the victims, the heroes, everyone. Remember those who worked hard in the aftermath to keep our country safe.
And remember that God is there, even in the midst of tragedy.
That’s a Truth we should always keep in mind.
