I’m thankful that Americans know how to bounce back as well as any people in the world.
While terrorists continue their senseless attacks worldwide, attempting to undermine the public’s will and resolve, bouncing back to welcome a new sunrise every day remains a prayerful gift of the sane portion of the human race everywhere on the globe.
The United States as a nation just observed the fifteenth anniversary of the tragedy of the destruction of the World Trade Center in New York City that occurred on September 11, 2001. Thousands of lives were lost and demolished, as well.
I am grateful, as an American, for the togetherness of our nation. Sane citizens recognize we must keep alive the importance of the remembrance of events like the Towers attack. Remembrance is paramount to the survival of our freedom.
Like the horrific Holocaust of World War II, events as tragic as the Towers attack must historically and forever be kept alive, lest the human condition lapses and allows them to happen again. Always remember; never forget — for the sake of all sane generations to come.
Every story of every human in the world speaks of the human condition, perseverance, and a search for dignity.
How do you feel about remembering sad events and keeping them alive? What does your pen want to say about sadness, memory, resiliency, human dignity, perseverance, and positivity?

(BONUS Trivia: Mount Rushmore Presidential Bookends are available for purchase as souvenirs. Gutzon Borglum, Mount Rushmore sculptor, designed the molds still used for these bookends. TRUE, or FALSE?
