Memory helps keep alive the freedoms and values we cherish and the people – dead and alive – we want to always be with us.
With that in mind, I hope you’ll visit some of the following blogs and other places today.
Michelle Malkin's Remembrance and Resistance post which provided the title for this post and Lorie Byrd’s Six Years Later We Will Not Forget are outstanding starting places.
Both posts are rich in texts, photos, audios and video clips which recall and honor the many who served on September 11, 2001 and the many who died that day, with some of their last acts heroic.
Lorie’s post has many links. It's where I found this link to the text of President Bush’s Sept. 20, 2001 Address to the Congress and Nation.
Also thanks to Lorie I found this link to Instapundit’s Glenn Reynolds’ posting on 9/11 right as events were unfolding.
Finally, William Teach at the Raleigh, NC based Pirate’s Cove posts with many “never forget” statements and photos. Here’s one of them from September, 2005:
Al Qaeda traditionally issues a video every year on the anniversary, with the last testament of one of the 19 hijackers involved in the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks. This year’s video showed hijacker Waleed al-Shehri, addressing the camera and warning the U.S.: "We shall come at you from your front and back, your right and left."Let us honor our heroes, cherish our values and never forget what Waleed al-Shehri and his ilk are telling us and working night and day to do.
