September 11th - 6 years later

September 11th. It was all so surreal. It happened so fast.
I remember my wife and I were staying in a small campground in Redding, California in our fifth wheel.
It was a morning like any other morning during that time when we had time to travel more than we do now. I was busy writing the final chapters for my book on web hosting. I got a call from my Mom telling me about a plane that hit a building in New York. I turned the television on and watched with disbelief as the second plane hit the second tower.
As we commemmorate that day, the lives that were lost, the heroes, let us not ever forget the hatred of the terrorists that did this and why they hate us.
We must never forget the lessons we learned that day, and to always cherish our great Republic, and our freedoms that our veterans and troops have sacrificed so that we can enjoy.

On another note, here is a video that Budweiser aired after 9/11 to honor the fallen. It was only aired once so as not to receive profits from it. We saw the Clydesdales at Sea World in San Antonio recently. There is a reason that Budweiser is the king of beers...
