Today is the 16th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the United States. Today, we are personally proud of the United States for not remaining a victim. As individuals and as a nation we will never forget those who lost their lives and the loved ones who will eternally grieve the loss of life and possibilities. We are part of a generation who will forever awake on September 11th with a pang in our chest for those we lost and the innocence we left behind on that dreadful day.
