It's been nine years since the towers fell, nine years since I was terrified, nine years since the nation mourned the loss of thousands of people; friends, parents, neighbors, husbands and wives. People were brave and strong, and terrified and hysterical. What a bag of emotions; anger, sadness, grief, and relief for those who made it out alive. I will never forget September 11th, 2001, and no one should.
Yet, on this anniversary 9/11 seems more of a topic than previous years due to the great mosque debate. Should or shouldn't a Muslim rec center be built two blocks from ground zero?
On that horrific day nine years ago everyone joined together to help, to listen, to aid and assist. Strangers helping strangers, carrying, holding, hugging. To commemorate 9/11, I feel we should continue with the love and deny these awful prejudices.
