Franklin Roosevelt once gave a speech. He gave the speech to Congress following an event which would go down in history as one of the reasons why the United States entered World War II. His speech confronted tragedy and loss... straight from sentence one. This is what he said:
Yesterday, December 7, 1941—a date which will live in infamy—the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.
The Pearl Harbor attack was truly a tragedy and many in our nation still take time to remember it and the lives which were lost that day in 1941. September 11 is no different. With it being so recent in our memories we cannot help but remember what happened that day. For many, we remember exactly where we were or what we were doing when we first heard the news or when we witnessed the planes crash into the buildings on live television. For those who witnessed the tragedy by eye, I can only imagine as to what kind of pain and emotions were felt. Take the time to remember those lost souls. Take the time to pray for their families. Take the time to be proud to be an American.
