Today is the nineteenth anniversary of September 11, 2001. On that dark day radical Islamic terrorists from Al Qaeda. On that tragic days thousands died in New York City, Washington, D.C. and Pennsylvania.
“If we learn nothing else from this tragedy, we learn that life is short and there is no time for hate.”

The National September 11 Memorial in Manhattan
Today is a dark day in American history. Let’s stop and reflect on the lives that were lost due to terrorism in Pennsylvania, New York City and Washington, D.C. This blog has done several posts about September 11 over the years. Today I am just going to compile them into this post.
- “September 11, 2001 National Memorial and Museum at Ground Zero” looks at the 9-11 Memorial and Museum in Manhattan. If you have never been to this museum then one day you should go.
- Last year I featured a blog post of someone who once worked inside the World Trade Center. He had that dark Tuesday off serving on jury duty. You can read an intimate experience of 9-11 in, “Take a Moment and Let’s Remember September 11, 2001. Today’s Post Features a Blog From Someone Who Once Worked in the World Trade Center.”
- This brief post is about what September 11, 2001 means to me. You can read that in, “Remembering September 11, 2001.”
Let’s remember those Americans who died today, nineteen years ago.
