Remembering 9/11 14 Years Later- Lanai Jarrico Reporting...

Image borrowed from google search-
It has been 14 years to the day since terrorism showed its evil ways on American soil and hit us right in the heart of New York City.  It was a devastating day in American history that changed countless lives forever. We all felt fear, violation, loss and vulnerability as America was attacked. Thousands of hardworking people and servicemen came down with the twin towers as well as people on flight 93 and in the Pentagon. The world came to a standstill as people from around the world stood in horror and disbelief while fixated on the news.  It was a day that remains as one of the most horrific events in American history and continues to be remembered on this day.

Almost a decade and a half later so much has changed. The  devastation from that day went from fear,  grief and mourning  to bravery and strength. Today we stand strong against terrorism as we remember our fallen victims. Each and every one of them are our heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice that opened our eyes to pure evil but it did not destroy us. There was a deep wound in the ground where the towers once stood.Now there is great big testament of our strength and how we overcame terror and raised above

We look toward to the future while still remembering our past. This shows that our spirit which was once shaken did not collapse. It made our country unite and become stronger. Tragedy often brings people together and creates an awareness that we can carry with us as we live our lives to the best of our abilities. Uniting in such a way is more powerful than an attack. We as people have the opportunity to make positive change and teach our youth the importance of all life on this planet. Not just in our our family, neighborhoods or country, but in the world. We may have been attacked, but we are not alone in a world vulnerable to conflict.

The world is not a perfect place and will never be with the constant turmoil that fuels the conflicts happening today. However, in each of us there is a desire for peace and the need to protect our families and loved ones. This is the force that drives us. No matter how big or small your positive contribution to the world is, it is one step closer to a brighter future for our children and a better appreciation for the men and women who serve our country and fight for our freedoms.

Take this day to reflect on our past and look toward the future with hope. Do a good deed and help others in need, tell the people you care about that you love and appreciate them and most of all focus on doing your part to make this world a better place for our future generations. They will be our next leaders, educators and protectors.

God Bless America and everyone around the world who believes in peace, love and the future of this planet.

In Second Life we observed this day with memorials and events. Here are a couple places your can go and reflect.

Observing 9/11 in Second Life- Dedicated to those who fell and to those who carry on ©- Orchids Zenovka Reporting…

September 11th is the 252nd day of the year (253rd in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. There are 113 days remaining until the end of the year. But there were some who did not get to see them.

Remembering :
The September 9/11 attacks were a series of four coordinated terrorist attacks upon the United States in New York City and the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area on Tuesday, September 11, 2001. Four passenger airliners were hijacked by 19 terrorists so they could be flown into buildings in suicide attacks. Two of those planes, American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175, were crashed into the North and South towers, respectively, of the World Trade Center complex in New York City. Within two hours, both towers collapsed with debris and the resulting fires causing partial or complete collapse of all other buildings in the WTC complex, as well as major damage to ten other large surrounding structures. A third plane, American Airlines Flight 77, was crashed into the Pentagon (the headquarters of the United States Department of Defense), leading to a partial collapse in its western side. The fourth plane, United Airlines Flight 93, was targeted at Washington, D.C.,[2] but crashed into a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania after its passengers tried to overcome the hijackers. In total, almost 3,000 people died in the attacks, including the 227 civilians and 19 hijackers aboard the four planes. It also was the deadliest incident for firefighters in the history of the United States.

Remembering 9/11- By Allen Eppenberger

 It’s been eleven years now since the World Trade Center attack.  While physical evidence of the wounds have healed, some mental healing takes time.

Back in 2001, I was working nights until 11:00 pm.  The internet was only a few years old, and still a playground for me.  I’d be on until roughly 1 am, and fall into bed, and sleep until about 10 am the next morning.  My radio would be my alarm clock those days.  As I was stirring that morning, I vaguely sleepily questioned why I was getting news rather than music at that time.  Something about airplanes, and towers, and lampposts being
sheared off in Washington.  As I laid there, I slowly listened to the descriptions of the horrors that had happened as I slept.

9/11 was observed across the Second Life Grid

September 11th marked the day, the world stood still and we all witnessed a horrific act upon many, who lost their lives that day.  It affected each one of us in some way and It evoked not only fear, sadness and anger, to sent shockwaves around the globe.

This event has also brought about a great courage that was witnesses by all on that day, as firefighters raced up the towers in a selfish act of helping others and losing their lives along with many husbands, wives, daughters, sons, mothers and fathers. Most of us can remember exactly where we were or what we were doing at the moment they got the news.
