Our American Spirit

If you are my age, chances are you remember where you were when you first heard about the first twin tower. I was in my bedroom at my parents house in McAllen watching Diane Sawyer on Good Morning America. You can read my previous posts HERE and HERE.

Our lives changed dramatically after September 11th. We lost trust in each other. This distrust not only included Middle-Eastern people but Hispanics too. Racial profiling became the norm, and some would argue it was for good reason.

One thing that wasn't lost was our American spirit. Collectively, we continued life and kept going. Evil will never prevail.
