It’s been 20 years since 9/11 and the tragedy is still etched in every corner of the United States – see seven 9/11 memorials to visit in the United States here.
In the two decades since the reprehensible attacks by al-Qaeda terrorists on American soil, numerous memorials have been erected, including two of the most recognizable, the National September 11 Memorial and Museum in New York City, located on the former World Trade site. Center and The National 9/11 Pentagon Memorial in Washington, DC (the latter is currently closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic). Scattered across the country, from California to New Jersey, these monuments to lost lives are worth a visit as we remember that tragic day.
Look at the 911 timeline here to remind you of events once again:
On this tragic day of memory of September 11, our thoughts turn first to the victims, first responders and their families who have suffered. The next day, it was extraordinary to see America and the world unite in solidarity, regardless of race, gender or nationality in search of freedom. Then the world gathered the courage to face the terrorist who perpetrated this tragedy. But events are moving on and new threats are appearing.
Some have forgotten. University of Florida students say education on 9/11 attacks “should avoid blaming” and called for an end to perpetuated ideas of “American exceptionalism in the latest example of awakened ideas unleashing on college campuses. “.
Ahead of the 20th anniversary, student journalist Ophelie Jacobson interviewed students on the Gainesville campus to ask for their views on education surrounding the September 1, 2001 terrorist attacks. Watch this in a video from Students Think 9/11 Lessons should omit “creepy” details, “Avoid blaming”:
Our country has spent two decades valiantly fighting those elements that attacked us on that fateful day. What does it mean that we will wake up to cry and remember that day knowing that we have just risen and returned power to the enemy in a perverse exercise of legitimacy? It sure means something …
Undoubtedly, those who perished that morning and those on Middle Eastern soil ever since know what it means, and nowhere will the words sacred, honor or freedom be used to describe this unthinkable turn of events.
This great country has survived fierce attacks over the years, including the 9/11 atrocity. It appears that it is now letting itself be torn apart by an even greater threat. There are evil and vile elements among us today, which are the new terrorists who hate freedom, those who seek change through violence. They try to divide America on the basis of race, class and religion.
The Right thread ratio hopes and prays that the good people of this great country will once again gather the courage to face this new challenge. The alternatives could make times very dark. Never forget the 9/11 event and its wider context to keep America safe and prosperous for future generations of our children.
