We Remember 9/11
FREE Catholic Classes
On September 11, 2001, our world changed forever. Almost three thousand people lost their lives that day, and many more due to related illnesses and the conflict that followed. Let us remember our loved ones, and pray the world never again knows such horror.
LOS ANGELES, CA (California Network) - There are few moments in history which burn indelibly into our minds, so we remember where we were. For those of us who were old enough to remember, 9/11 is one such moment.
First there was the shock and the surprise. How could such an accident happen? But we knew in our minds it was no accident. Then, the second plane, the Pentagon, the collapses, and the crash in Pennsylvania. From the towers to the heroes of flight 93, we learned about the heroic self-sacrifice of hundreds of people who gave their lives to save others.
Since then, thousands of people have been called to heroism to make the world safe from terror. Few events in history have been the cause of so much misery and loss. But amid all the trouble, there have been miracles. A lone survivor, a firefighter pulled from the rubble of the towers more than a day after their collapse, the outpouring of support in the aftermath, the flying of flags, and displays of solidarity. The lines, wrapped around blocks as millions queued to donate blood. Never has the United States been so united as in the days and weeks following 9/11.
This 9/11, Catholic Online invites you to remember this day, the people we lost, and those who served. Light a candle and share a brief memory of your day. Let us pray for justice, peace, and solidarity.
You are invited to light your candle here and pray with others who have lit candles in memory of this day.
