Thirteen years ago today, America faced one of the worst terrorist attacks this world has seen. Over a decade later, Americans live in great fear of terrorism because the vivid images still haunt us. Remembering what happened on September 11, 2001 paralyzes us every time in horror and disgust.
After 9/11 I’ve always feared the possibility of L.A. experiencing what N.Y.C. experienced. The terrors that ISIS/ISIL have inflicted upon the world just add to my anxiety. Yesterday night I had a hard time falling asleep, my mind couldn’t stop thinking about all of the people who went to bed not knowing what was awaiting them the next morning. I was afraid of waking up to terrible news this morning…I’m thankful that was not the case and I hope America (or any country) never has to face tragic events like those that occurred on September 11th.
This day marks a terrible moment in history for America; innocent lives were lost, many of who were public servants including brave police officers and firefighters who were trying to save lives. The only reason I was able to lay my head down to rest was because I thought of America’s incredible HEROES. Those who serve are the reason I can sleep peacefully at nights. So…I would like to thank all of the extremely brave men and women who serve this country. From local public servants who protect their communities to military officers who protect our nation, YOU ARE TRUE HEROES! I take comfort in knowing that courageous people protect my country, because God knows I would never be able to do what you do. As much as we say it, it will never be enough due to the immense risks you take to ensure our safety. THANK YOU.
I don’t know if it’s possible but I sure do hope this world lives in peace one day.
My heart goes out to all of the families, friends and loved ones of those who lost their lives.
Rest In Peace.
