Five Years Ago Today

Five years ago today, the world as we knew it was forever altered.

Five years ago today, thousands of people lost their lives, in an evil act of malice by a group of madmen propagating their campaign of terror.

Five years ago today, the feeling of safety and security by an entire nation was shattered.

Five years ago today, a new era of hate, mistrust, prejudice and fear began.

One day before this tragedy, we were smug and comfortable in our own complacency. We thought we were invincible; that nobody would dare touch us, that our national security was strong enough to prevent something of this magnitude.

We were wrong.

And the thousands of precious, innocent people that were lost on that day are gone, never to be returned to us, much like our sense of security.

Today, we mourn and remember those who gave their lives on that day.

Tomorrow, we solemnly move forward with our own.
