I don't need to see the clip....I drive by the huge whole in the NYC skyline every Thursday night as I cross the bridge. I remember the first thursday I went over that bridge, 2 days after the attack. All you could see was smoke billowing where the towers once stood. I have never been so rocked before. Ever get punched in the stomac? Know that feeling of all the air just rushing out of you? Tripple that. I could tell I wasn't the only one, too. There were cars stopped all the way across the bright while people recovered from their first look.
We, as Americans, learned something in the days and weeks that followed. We learned that, as a people, we are trully a nation of charity. A nation of support. People came from ALL OVER this country to help New York City and Washington D.C. One nation....Indivisible. That line in the pledge suddenly makes so much sense.
And let us not forget to extend our heartfelt thanks to those in other countries that lent their aid and support. Canada, Most of Europe, Mexico, Austrailia, Japan, and too many others to count. Please know, if you are from any of these places, that we, as a nation, thank you for your support. No matter who's government disagrees with who's, it's not the governement that makes the people, it's the people.
