September 11th, 2010

So today is the 9 year anniversary of the World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks, as well as the plane hijackings; there are going to be a lot of events going on around the United States today for the remembrance of those that died.

It is officially a national holiday called 'Patriot Day'.

However, besides taking a moment of silence to remember all those who died on September 11th, 2001, if you are able in this rough economy see if you can give a little help to those organizations that help the victims families.

If I missed any it is not because they are less important, I just don't know of them.

So take the time and have a moment of silence today, and remember all those that died 9 years ago.

I know I will.
