9/11: A Day of Service and Remembrance

Nine years ago, nearly three thousand Americans lost their lives in the 9/11 tragedy. And, numerous of Americans have risked their lives through saving other Americans in this same tragedy. Today, the Americans can reflect on these fallen brave men and women and also reflect on these fallen ones' families and friends who still greatly grieve about them during this tough economy. This day also gives the politicians and leaders on the Capitol Hill a time to consider the importance of strengthening the National Security laws and policies in order to protect this country against any other adversarial challenges from not only the Islamic countries but from other foreign countries as well.

I'd like to kindly mention that the 9/11 event has illustrated the heroism and selflessness of so many of these fellow Americans in the wake of this tragedy. After seeing the politicians and leaders try to solve the 9/11 situation a few years ago, they have GREATLY inspired me to get into a major in International Studies with a concentration in Diplomacy in college. As I was pursuing this degree in college in 2005, I wanted to show the Americans that a Deaf person could, indeed, show a GREAT concern for protecting this nation from any unwanted political and social challenges as well. Besides that, several defense and security initiatives in America continue to be used in order to prevent this country from having any other tragic issues in a few years from now. But, the critical need for strengthening these defense and security initiatives has become important as well.

May God Bless those Americans who lost their lives in this terrible tragedy.Will you be honoring these fallen ones on this September 11th National Day of Service? I definitely will be!
