Today is the 15th Anniversary of the 9/11 Terror Attacks – Let us not forget. 

I do not normally post anything here on my blog that is not a book review, but I am making an exception today.

We need to ensure that we never forget the horror of that day, BUT we also need to remember that in that time of horror, people came together and did whatever they could to help the victims and their families. 

Here are a few quotes that were posted at PARADE.COM 

“On the 15th anniversary of the Sept. 11 tragedy, remember and reflect with these powerful quotes.”

“Even the smallest act of service, the simplest act of kindness, is a way to honor those we lost, a way to reclaim that spirit of unity that followed 9/11.”
President Obama in a 2011 radio address

“If we learn nothing else from this tragedy, we learn that life is short and there is no time for hate.”
Sandy Dahl, wife of Flight 93 pilotJason Dahl, in Shanksville, Pa., in 2002

“My older brother John lived [his life] in Technicolor. … When he walked in the door, the whole house lit up. And I’m sure heaven lit up when he got there too.”
Anthoula Katsimatides at the World Trade Center site in 2005

“Five years from the date of the attack that changed our world, we’ve come back to remember the valor of those we lost—those who innocently went to work that day and the brave souls who went in after them. We have also come to be ever mindful of the courage of those who grieve for them, and the light that still lives in their hearts.”
—New York City mayor ­Rudolph Giuliani at the World Trade Center site in 2006
