I was recently in New York City where a memorial to the Americans who lost their lives on September 11, 2001, reaches to the heavens. Knowing that fifteen lives from our own corner of America were claimed on that fateful day, I offered a small prayer for them and their families. One World Trade Center serves as a beacon of strength and hope, reminding us all that while we must never forget, we must also bravely face each new day. Much has happened in eleven years. We have seen that the bonds that unite us are stronger than the forces that divide us. The sadness we felt on that fateful Tuesday has morphed into the knowledge that America can weather any storm.

Tell us where you were on that morning.
Eleven years ago today, the world changed. 19 hijackers flew planes into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a field in Pennsylvania. Most of us will always remember where we were that morning when we heard the news or watched it unfold on TV. America, and the world, watched in horror, disbelief and grief. Planes were grounded nationwide, and the nation went from peace to war within moments. Where were you on that fateful morning? And what were your first thoughts and reactions as the United States was under attack by terrorists? Discuss in the comments below.
We want to know what you think. Tell us in the comment section.
Today we remember those who died in the September 11 attacks and their families. In the past 11 years much has changed, but are we any safer? The attacks served as the starting point for the War on Terror which sent millions of men and women into battle, drastic changes in security, economic affects, cultural and foreign policy changes. The day also marked the start of a manhunt, the arrests of several al Quaeda members, and eventual capture of Osama bin Laden. Today, we reflect on what happened on that horrific morning and all that has happened since. We want to know what you think: Is America a safer place today?
