It’s been 18 years since September 11, 2001. I was an 18-year-old senior in high school and I still remember that day like it was yesterday. But sadly, at this point as a grown adult, I’ve become so numb to these tragic events.
It doesn’t quite shock me to find out about another terrorist attack happening somewhere in the world. Day after day…city after city…communities after communities. It’s become the norm, the usual news.
We can’t go anywhere anymore without the every day typical threat. Churches, mosques, concerts, marathons, shopping malls, beaches…even Walmart are all places where a terrorist attack can happen. Our own children are not safe going to school. That’s just so sad.
I’m sad but I’m also so mad. I remember 18 years ago, we stood together and bonded…harder than any recent times in history. The American people were showing pride and flashing our nation’s flag everywhere to represent our country’s strength, love and unity.
And now, 18 years later, we all know who the real terrorists are. It’s all of you who really don’t give a sh*t about making America great again. It’s everyone who ignores their responsibility to protect all civilians. It is every single person in this world who believes that they are just to make judgments. It’s also you and I…when we choose to do nothing and stand by quietly.
We need to do more. Love and accept openly. Enjoy life equally. It’s time we really wake up and make sure that we, as a whole human race and not just Americans, never forget what happened on 9/11 and all other acts of terror.
Never forget. Please, for the sake of our future generations, always remember the loved ones lost from every tragic attack and…NEVER FORGET ❤️
