Memory

Many memories make up the national conscience of the United States. Some are glorious events, and others are filled with sorrow and suffering. Undoubtedly, one of the most profound events in American history happened on American soil a decade ago, and is so well-known, it’s known simply by a number – 9/11. Speaking of that day on December 11, 2001, just three short months later, President George W. Bush said, “Now, we have inscribed a new memory alongside those others. It’s a memory of tragedy and shock, of loss and mourning. But not only of loss and mourning. It’s also a memory of bravery and self-sacrifice, and the love that lays down its life for a friend–even a friend whose name it never knew. “
