Inside-Scooters Remembers 9/11

Hey guys, as most of you know, today is 9/11. Ten years ago, on this day The United States of America went through one of the worst moments in its history. The Twin Towers were attacked by terrorists, and collapsed to the New York City floor. Hundreds of lives were lost that day, and millions of people were affected by what happened on September 11, 2001.

I was pretty young when the attack happened, and I don't think I understood exactly what it meant, and what the consequence would be. It would take years before I really understood the severity of what happened on that day.

Our country would be in a war for the next ten years, and even more lives would be lost. I've had friends that served in the war, and it is never an easy thing to deal with knowing your loved ones are in such a dangerous place. While there is endless discussion about the attack, and who was behind it or, wasn't. I think one thing needs to be made clear. The fact that none of us should ever forget what happened on 9/11.

Take this time to remember anyone you might have lost, or is serving our country overseas. Call your family members, and let them know you love them. Because as we found out on this day ten years ago, nothing in life is certain. Something can happen on a perfectly beautiful morning, that can change the course of our lives for years and years to come. Thanks guys.
