Remembering 9/11

With words that echo through the years to heal the wounds of the present, the world pauses to remember 9/11. "With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in; to bind up the nation's wounds; to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan -- to do all which may achieve and cherish a just, and a lasting peace, among ourselves, and with all nations."~Abraham Lincoln, The Gettsyburg Address. No one will forget where they were and what they were doing when the news of the terrorist attack came across the airwaves. The images are burned into our collective souls. Let us not forget the 26 Canadians that died on that fateful day. We are a global community united in memory for those who lost their lives and those who were left behind to rebuild from the ashes of a terroist attack. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
