Ten years ago today, countless people's lives changed. The nation changed; the world changed. On a day like today, ten years seems such a short time span. With all the reflection, I'm sure most people keenly remember where they were, what they were doing, and how they felt upon learning of the surrealistic tragedy assailing our very beings. I know I do.
The sadness of Patriot Day will always be around for generations to come; it will never leave us. Nevertheless, sadness need not dominate and oppress us. I have seen a lot of good come of these events. Valiant heroes have come and gone, taking no thought for their own personal safety. Many more continue to do so. They inspire us, and so they continue to be heroes.
And many others, too numerous to mention.
May God bless the U.S.A.
