11 years ago today, there was a tragedy that everyone remembers. Today is the 9/11 memorial and President Obama and Michelle Obama joined the relatives of the victims and the military members to the ceremony to honor the ones that passed away when the United Flight slammed into the twin towers. Mr. Obama told the people, “No matter how many years pass, no matter how many times we come together on this hallowed ground, know this — that you will never be alone… Your loved ones will never be forgotten. They will endure in the hearts of our nation, because through their sacrifice, they helped us make the America we are today — an America that has emerged even stronger.” Like how President Obama stated, they will never be forgotten and this event will be remembered in our hearts.
