Twenty years ago, our Nation and our way of life came under attack. 19 Terrorists hijacked four airplanes and took thousands of American lives. 2 planes headed to New York where they struck and toppled the Twin Towers / World Trade Center in Downtown Manhattan. One plane made it to Washington DC, striking and attacking Pentagon. One plane also headed for Washington DC, and the passengers tried to regain control of the aircraft. As a result, that plane crashed in Pennsylvania, never making it for its intended target.
Today, we remember all of those who lost their lives 20 years ago. Their families and friends will forever hold a special place in our hearts.
Today, at Arlington National Cemetery, a rose stands at each resting place of those who lost their lives from the Pentagon being attacked. Attached is a picture of one of those individuals with their rose.
In November, I strive to do the same. For Veterans Day, I will be at Arlington National Cemetery honoring these individuals with a rose, as well as our Afghanistan Fallen.
Let’s never forget those who have been affected by these tragic acts of terrorism. Rather it be the attacks on September 11, 2001, or those who lost their lives in both wars that followed as part of the Global War on Terrorism. Please, never forget these individuals and our fallen heroes.

Today, tomorrow, and every day forward. Let’s never forget those who lost their life as a result of terrorism.
