9-11 Plus 18

It has been 18 years since a group of Islamofascists hijacked four planes bound for the West Coast. Two were crashed into the Twin Towers, one was crashed into the Pentagon, and the fourth never made it to its target thanks to the bravery of the passengers on Flight 93.

Our local news made the point in its evening broadcast that, with few exceptions, kids in school today have no memory of the event because they weren’t even born yet. I have vivid memories of that day. For me they are indelible yet these children will only learn of it through books, the media, and the memories of those of us old enough to remember.

We need to keep those memories alive for posterity.
