It used to be “Remember the Alamo!” Over time, that phrase has been losing more and more cache. Now the U.S. has something new to remember. Now the entire country can remember surprise attacks on civilians in 2001. Now we have a new unifying tragedy.
Islamic terrorists crashed planes into building in a surprise attack on this day, September 11, in 2001. It was so absurd that nobody had planned for such an act of hostility.
So we will remember what happened. We will prepare ourselves. We will harden ourselves.
“We do not forgive. We do not forget.”
