I dedicate today’s 9.11 mile run to the victims of 9/11. My 9/11 story is nothing special, nor anyone else’s. It’s only differentiated by the varying degrees of sadness and loss someone experienced that day, 13 years ago. Terrorists had believed they were attacking a country, but in fact, they were attacking individuals and their families. Crashing a plane into important buildings does not cause a country to collapse. It collapses the hearts of the loved ones left behind, and in turn, brings the country closer together to mourn the loss of the great people who were robbed of their lives far too early. We’re still mourning, and we’re still united by those events.
This was our biggest lesson of hope and camaraderie, and should be used as an example of how the human race can still rely on heroes to exist.
Thank you to all the heroes out there, we will never forget September 11, 2001, not only because of what we lost, but of what we gained in return. May we remember those who lost their lives on 9/11 and continue to pray for their loved ones.
God bless, America!
