God Bless America – 10th Anniversary of September 11th

Exactly ten years ago today, tragedy struck American soil early on the morning of September 11, 2001.

Volumes of information and personal narrative have been written about this day and its effect upon the economic, political, and social landscape of both the US and the world stage. Here at Mormon Perspectives, we add our support to those directly affected by the 9/11 calamity and its long-reaching effects, to reverence those fallen in heroic acts of bravery, and to ask God to bless both America and those who righteously fight to defend the freedom of the people of the world.

I think of my own father, who was supposed to have meetings in the WTC that day but couldn’t catch a flight out of Phoenix. I’m mindful always of those who lost a loved one, because it very easily could have been me.

“This is a day when all Americans from every walk of life unite in our resolve for justice and peace. America has stood down enemies before, and we will do so this time. None of us will ever forget this day. Yet, we go forward to defend freedom and all that is good and just in our world.” – George W. Bush, 9/11/01
