I was a kid when tragedy struck the twin towers. 5th or 6th grade but I saw the world then and how it changed everything. The world stopped that day and became a little bit darker. Seeing adults clinging to one another in fear, in hope, and feeling devastated that the country we enjoy and celebrate was under attack.
As a kid I didn’t know the world beyond my race cars and Rugrats. I’ve seen what makes this country the greatest country in the world. From the incredible landscapes and views, to the down home and gracious people that also call home to America. Now, as an adult I get to enjoy the freedom of simply being myself. A simple thing we all take for granted but could be taken so quickly without warning. As quickly as nearly 3,000 people lost their lives on September 11th 2001.
We will always honor the memory of those who lost their life’s that day. The brave that rushed in to help when human instinct yells in your mind to go the opposite way. That’s what makes America great. America is a land of many different walks of life, cultures, races, and belief’s and that’s what makes America truly beautiful.
In times of tragic and chaos it’s not always easy to find the right words to express your emotions. In this, there was sadness, hearts crushed and broken, and there was anger. Some of the most moving songs emerged from the rubble of this horrible day. Here are a few of those songs and may we still send prayers and thoughts for all those affected by this event in American history.
GOD BLESS AMERICA.
