A 2018 Memoriam: “9.11.01”

May we never forget what allows us the freedom to fall in love, follow the passions of our talents, or simply pursue our day-to-day interests in the great game of baseball for most or all of the year. The thousands of our brothers, sisters, parents, children, relatives, friends, and strangers who died in that grotesquely violent assault upon their own rights to enjoy those same freedoms back on September 11, 2001 should never be forgotten as a result.

The day those innocent victims of 911 ever are forgotten ~ is the day that all is lost for the rest of us.

God Bless America! ~ Remember 911!

  1. Tom Hunter Says:

    12/7/41 – 11/22/63 – 9/11/01. The first two dates tend to fade in the collective memory as those generations age and pass away. Let’s hope the memory of 9/11 lasts in this age of short attention spans and historical indifference.

    • Rick B. Says:

      Time passes quickly and events become relegated to history books equally fast, I’m afraid. The incoming college freshmen that I’m currently teaching have no memory of 9/11/01 because they were too young. Soon I’ll be teaching students who weren’t even born yet when those events happened.
