Determined never to forget but perhaps ready to move on, the nation gently handed Sept. 11 over to history Sunday and engraved its memory on a new generation. An honorable memorial now stands, where twin towers once stood. The names of the lost echoed from children too young to remember terror from a decade ago.
In New York, Washington and Pennsylvania, across the United States and the world, people carried out rituals now as familiar as they are heartbreaking: American flags unfolded at the new World Trade Center tower and the Eiffel Tower, and tears shed at the base of the Pentagon and a base in Iraq.
President Barack Obama quoted the Bible and spoke of finding strength in fear. George W. Bush, still new to the presidency that day, appealed the national sacrifice of the Civil War. Vice President Joe Biden said hope must grow from tragedy.
“In the biggest cities and the smallest towns, in our schools and workplaces, you still see people of every conceivable race, religion and ethnicity, all of them pledging allegiance to one flag, all of them reaching for the same American dream: ‘E pluribus unum’ — ‘Out of many, we are one,” Obama said.
Plaza College would like to send their deepest sympathies and prayers to the families of the victims that took place on September 11th 2001. They will always be loved and missed and certaintly never forgotten. God Bless America!
