9/11 A Day Of Remembrance & Reflection Worldwide

It is with great sadness that I begin my day reflecting upon the tragedy that shook the very foundation of The United States Of America nine years ago today on September 11, 2001 when 19 Al-Qaeda terrorists hijacked  four planes and began a series of suicide attacks.


At 8:46 a.m., American Airlines Flight 11 was crashed into the World Trade Center's North Tower, followed by United Airlines Flight 175 which hit the South Tower at 9:03 a.m. Another group of hijackers flew American Airlines Flight 77 into the Pentagon at 9:37 a.m. A fourth flight, United Airlines Flight 93 crashed near Shanksville, Pennsylvania at 10:03 a.m, after the passengers on board engaged in a fight with the hijackers. Its ultimate target was thought to be either the Capitol (the meeting place of the United States Congress) or the White House.

The destruction and fatalities of these attacks were devastating, and the aftermath and lingering effects of such a tragic event as this is not something that time can ever truly heal. Even though it is 9 years later the pain is still ever present and not something that can subside so easily. So many still mourn the loss of their loved ones, children whom are growing up without their parents struggling to understand why, communities still shaken, people suffering from PTSD from the attacks, families still coping with the fact they never even found their loved ones remains and so many are still trying to comprehend the how and why of the whole situation.

I ask that today everyone put their issues and differences to the side and allow this to be a day of remembrance and reflection not overshadowed by all the religious and political tension that is on the forefront right now. Also keeping in mind that not only were Americans affected by the Tragedy of 9/11 but other countries were as well. There were also lives lost that day whom were not Americans, more than 90 countries lost citizens in the attacks on the World Trade Center alone. So this really is a day of remembrance and reflection not just nationwide for Americans but worldwide for everyone.


In closing I will say my thoughts are with you all today and I pray that one day the world will come together in complete Unity. That everyone will embrace their is only one race THE HUMAN RACE, there is no right religion ALL RELIGIONS HAVE MERIT, war & terrorism ARE PROBLEMS NOT SOLUTIONS and love is unconditional and should be given TO EVERYBODY.

Blessings TO ALL
