September 11th, 2001 marked the day this country lost a sense of security…a day that our patriotism was put to the test and some of our family members, friends, colleagues, and fellow Americans were turned into victims. A normal New York day was transformed into a hellish nightmare that began as nineteen terrorists hijacked four commercial airliners originally headed for California.
That day the mighty Twin Towers came crumbling down after an intentional collision with American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175. This horrific attack on our country ingenerated 2,974 casualties, a multitude of damage and destruction, and an infliction of pain on every American’s mind, heart, and soul. September 11th was akin to a bad dream…a dream that showed no sign of ending.
Today, seven years later, the agony of September 11th’s terrorist attacks is as eminent as it was in 2001. It’s a day no American will ever forget…it’s the day we lost lives and perhaps peace of mind.
Although our nation’s security has dramatically tightened and irrespective of the fact that our country’s intelligence officials (such as the FBI and CIA) have been working to establish and implement plans that will allow them to predict and prevent terrorism, it is imperative to secure our safety by invoking our very own Plans of Emergency. An Emergency Plan may include the use of a Personal Terror Protection Kits as well as other anti-terror items like protective suits, and Potassium Iodate for radiation. It goes without saying that preparing ourselves for the unseen and unpredictable future is critical, if not life saving. Take the necessary steps today to free your mind of the possible distress of tomorrow.
Don’t let a day go by that you don’t at least for a minute, remember our lost citizens that died that day 7 years ago, as well as all of the men and women who have died fighting for our country ever since.
