9/11… We Remember

If you have an American character and the time frame is early September, you must make note of this iconic day.It can be as simple as that your character:

  • lost someone on that day
  • remembers what they were doing that day
  • was inspired to [join the military] because of that day
  • avoids NY Ground Zero
  • knows someone who will be out of touch, remembering those s/he lost that day

America, we love you.

    • Every year, on Sept. 11th, I worry, especially with both my kids in the military. They’ve each had the base they serve on attacked by terrorists. Of course, in the big picture, no place is perfectly safe so I have to accept that.


  1. Ironic that the USA, the country that defines and defends freedom, was attacked by terrorists who can’t stand the idea or practice of liberty. Cowards, all of them, and look at the horror all over the world instigated by the same kinds of monsters. Desperate refugees drowning as they try to make distant shore, millions of people huddled fearfully because they can’t escape, and all of them knowing there is one place that represents life and liberty – because we Americans try to live it every day. True even though we express different concepts of best how to achieve that freedom for everyone.
