The Day The World Cried

Freedom itself was attacked this morning by a faceless coward and freedom will be defended. Our fellow citizens, our way of life, our very freedom came under attack in
a series of deliberate and deadly terrorist acts. The victims were in airplanes or in their offices – secretaries, businessman and women, military and federal workers. Moms and dads, friends and neighbors. Thousands of lives were suddenly ended by, despicable acts of terror. The pictures of airplanes flying into buildings fires burning, huge structures collapsing have filled us with disbelief, terrible sadness and a quiet unyielding anger.

These acts of mass murder were intended to frighten our nation into chaos and retreat .

Immediately President Bush orders all airports and bridges to be shut down. 10:45 am the
South Tower of The World Trade Center collapses, disintegrating into the chaotic streets
of New York City. This fearful and emotional morning was hard enough to realize that it
was reality and not some clip from an action movie. Yet we had to grip our emotions and
deal with the situation.

What does it truly take to be a hero? A definition of a hero is a man or woman who is admired for their courage and nobility. After September 11th the firefighters
heroism opened our eyes and hearts to their patriotic and noble acts toward their country.

As thousands of people were struggling to get out, they went into the buildings risking
their own lives. They were not afraid to help those in need. Many of them survived,
though not all did. Families of the...
