9/11 Tribute We Will Never Forget - Nine Years Later

In honor of all who died, and all who survived and are suffering today, 9 years later, we have not forgotten and we will never forget.

In honor of all who served and died in New York City and on the battlefield, we have not forgotten and we will never forget.

When our children and grandchildren are old enough to bear the pain, they will see how Americans died on September 11, 2001 and they will never forget.

If any American leader attempts to create an environment of forgetfulness, do not fear, we will never forget.

If any of America's enemies use fear as a weapon to move us to ignore what we cannot forget, we will never forget.

Update: My friend at Holger Awakens is in New York City for Pam Geller's Remember Rally  Washington D.C. for the 912 Rally. He left this note here today:

"I’d like to share this: Last night, about 100 or so of us were down at the entrance of Walter Reed Army Medical Center with our “Support the Troops” signs and American flags…there were 3 Code Pinkers. We were on all four corners of the entrance on Georgia Avenue.

About 8:30 p.m., a young soldier, dressed in civvies, appeared at the one corner across the street from me – he was shaking hands with our guys over there. He then proceeded to walk across Georgia Ave to a thunderous round of applause and the car horns blaring from dozens and dozens of cars that stopped as he crossed the street, it took some time as I believe he was fairly new to his prosthetic leg. He met us on our corner, I shook his hand, I told him “thank you for your service, soldier, you have no idea how proud of you I am.” 

He walked across the street two more times as he shook every hand of every person there – his words were simple and heartfelt. 

He said to each of us:
“Thank you for doing this. You just can’t know how much it means to us to see you out here.”
This soldier was 19 or 20 years old.

The fact that this young soldier thanked US, is beyond comprehension.  These are the young Americans who deserve our honor, this day."
