911 Memorial - Let Us Never Forget What We Lost !

September 11, 2001 Will Never Be Forgotten! I was at Preston High school in Cambridge on that sunny morning when all hell broke loose. I was in the middle of going through my regular routine of filling my snack machines for the school as I had my own vending business back then and this was always my first stop. I noticed nothing the whole time I was filling the machines except that the women in the kitchen just across the hall seemed to be getting all excited and loud. I thought nothing of it since that was normal from time-to-time and I just continued on with my work. I had 5 high schools to look after each day and I spent little time gabbing that day since I just wanted to get the day over with. It wasn't before the afternoon when I went to my 5'Th school Jacob Hespeler that I found out what had happened but, I in no way realized the seriousness before getting home and turning on CNN. All I was told previously was that someone had attacked the World Trade Center and I had absolutely no idea just how serious it was! I think I was in some kind of trance or something after seeing the repeat footage of the strikes and all the panic that followed in New York. Was this a movie or what? I think around that same time documentaries were beginning to surface on "What If" situations that could arise. Like a Flue pandemic, massive earthquakes etc... Then they showed the Pentagon getting hit. What the hell? I asked myself. This just can't be real. I finally had the thought that if this was actually happening, it should be on every station on television so off I went to CBC News World (The Canadian equivalent to CNN). I watched and I watched and I continued to watch till the next morning at about 4:00am flicking between the 2 channels. I was raised to think that God had a reason for everything that happened in life and that although bad things do happen, they happen for a reason and sometimes good does come out of it. Like all of you, I could see no good in this before today. No, I'm not sick or crazy but listen up and hear me out. >>> Before this, Binladen was never taken serious enough as a worldwide threat. >>> Before this, not too many countries had good thoughts about the US except for their allies. >>> Before this, Americas security had serious holes in it. >>> Before this, Americas Patriotism was weaker. Before this happened, we were thinking that North America was invulnerable to major terrorist attacks! On September 11, 2001, all the above changed for the better and most of the world is now united to fight terrorism. New allies have been created and now when terrorists strike, it isn't just the US that responds. It's the whole world and to me, that's a good thing! We must never forget what happened or those we lost but, I guess God thought it was time for change. What do you think? Photo from this blog link courtesy of Press Telegram Media Center.
