I remember being in elementary school when the attacks happened on September 11, 2001 and not really understanding why people would do this awful thing. I just didn't understand the bad in the world at that age I suppose. The older I got I realized just how substantial the loss of life was.
Thousands of Americans died.
Five years ago on this very same day there was another attack, but not on American soil. Only four Americans perished, but that is still a huge loss of life in my book.
May we never forget either of these attacks. Every single one of the people that passed away has loved ones that still grieve them today and I can't begin to imagine how they feel. So many precious lives were taken way too early because of the evil in this world.
Hug a loved one today friends because, we really don't know what will happen and when we will lose someone dear to us. Life is so very short and we must make sure the ones we love never question how we feel about them
