Every year on this day America remembers the loss that we experienced on September 11th, 2001. A day that changed America dramatically. Even though I am young, I still remember that day and my own memories and experiences on that day still vividly remain with me. There are no words that can accurately describe the pain and loss that we felt as a nation 16 years ago and still do today. It is in this small way that I acknowledge the significance of today and my own responsibility as an American to give my respect.
