As an American we can all remember that fateful day. We can all remember where we were and what we we're doing when that horrific day unfolded and stunned America. It was day that not only struck anger in the many hearts of Americans but it was a day that made us feel helpless and vulnerable too. To watch the twin towers burn and collapse is something that will be always be etched in the mind of many Americans.  Just knowing that so many countless hard working innocent lives were lost in this tragedy. From mothers and fathers, sons and daughters, friends and family, to the many heroes who saved lives and died trying to save others. America may have been knocked off its perch on September 11, but like so many times before, we get back up, we survive, and we're stronger today, than ever before. A true testament to the American citizen, the American people, the American worker, and the American way of life.

God bless America!
