Today we remember the fate of so many souls lost on September 11th. We remember the towers crashing to the ground and the plane that was stopped from destroying our White House because of brave people that stood up to terrorism. Today we mark our calendars and minds and hearts with remembrance of that horrific day 15 years ago.
But we must not forget those souls we lost 4 years ago in Bengazi, Libya. Our ambassador, a state employee and the two brave men trying to save both of them. We mustn’t forget the men who went in to protect our ambassador and put their lives at risk not knowing what was in store for them on that fateful day. We must remember Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods, and Glen Doherty.
And we must not forget that according to one of our candidates running for president says that we did not lose any lives in Libya.
Yes we did. And they were good men sent to an area that was rife with terror.
Let us not forget our fallen men in Bengazi.
Let us not forget those we lost in the Twin Towers and Pentagon.
Let us not forget.

From Bing’s Homepage today:
Empty Sky is a memorial for the residents of New Jersey who died during the attacks on September 11, 2001. The two-walled structure is engraved with the names of all 746 New Jerseyites who were lost that day. The walls line up with the Manhattan skyline to direct the viewer’s gaze across the Hudson River to the place where the Twin Towers once stood.
For those we lost, and those who remain.

There is nothing I can ever say that will be adequate or hasn’t already been said. There is nothing that will change my memories of that fateful day. There is nothing that will take away the horror I feel when I see the replays.
I can never say enough to the brave men and women that stopped the hijackers of Flight 93. The brave men and women of the FDNY who helped rescue people from the towers. Our military and men and women in uniform that were there when the Pentagon was struck.
Nothing other than thank you. Thank you to all the brave people out there that stepped up and helped us all as a nation.
To the families of the victims, we all pray for you.
In remembrance of 9-11-01. That day will never be forgotten for the horror. However, that day will not be forgotten for the bravery as well.
God bless you all.
