It’s been thirteen years since that fateful day in September, yet my memory of that day is still crystal clear. It was a beautiful day, the weather was perfect, and America was on top of the world. We were invincible, or so we thought. Then the towers came tumbling down, and with that, the perception of our safety and global dominance were torn down as well. Past the initial shock of the tragedy, the effects of 9/11 are still felt around the country today.
Even after everything that’s happened, we still stand strong, and I still firmly believe the US is the best country in the world. We’re not without our faults, but there’s no other place in the world that’s like the US of A. No act of terrorism will take away our love of this country and its freedoms.
