america united.

we will never forget september 11, 2001.

while those terrorists took so much away from us, they also gave us something that they were seeking to destroy: unity.  they were trying to shatter our nation, leave it in pieces, and while they did that to american landmarks and american families who lost loved ones that day, they also brought so many people together.

i was only in 7th grade, but i will never forget the sense of unity in my small northeastern town during the days and weeks following that day.  every year i feel the same way around this time, and even when mike and i traveled to new york city this past winter and walked around ground zero, it seemed as though no one was complaining, no one pushed through the crowd, and everyone, even ten years later, observed this site with respect.
