We Remember: ‘Heaven 9-11′ Tribute [AUDIO]

I was watching a documentary this week that focused on the children who lost parents in the 9/11 attacks, and followed them over the last ten years to see how they're doing today. It was equal parts heartbreaking and encouraging to see these kids growing up, and picking up the pieces from that awful day that changed so many lives. As we pause this weekend to remember the fallen, it's important that we remember those left behind as well. Years ago, DJ Sammy & Yanou released a powerful "Heaven" remake that featured a five year old girl who had lost her father in the attacks. Much like the documentary, this updated version follows that girl over the last ten years. It's difficult to listen to - but reminds us that for many, the loss is just as painful today as it was ten years ago.

Minorities Were Targeted in ‘Revenge Attacks’ Following September 11 [VIDEO]

In the weeks and months following the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks, many Americans became more patriotic. They tied yellow ribbons around trees, raised the flag, donated blood and enlisted in the military. Others, however, decided to seek revenge, and because their targets were so far away, they opted to hurt anyone who appeared to fit a specific profile.

In the past 10 years, the FBI has investigated more than 800 cases of violence against Arab-Americans, Muslims, Sikhs or people perceived to be of Middle Eastern origin. It is unknown how many of these “revenge attacks” were investigated by local authorities, but some were fatal.

In the immediate hours following the attacks on New York and Washington D.C., it was nearly impossible to express in words our sorrow, our anger, our emotions.

What Do Americans Think About Sacrificing Rights to Fight Terrorism After 9/11?

The terror attacks on Sept. 11, 2001 left an indelible mark on Americans. But even as the first responders climbed through the rubble in New York, Washington, DC and Pennsylvania, the country embarked on a “War on Terror.” With that war came years of conflict in Afghanistan and Iraq, indefinite detention of terror suspects without charges or trial, enhanced interrogation techniques, extraordinary rendition and the passage of the USA Patriot Act.

Ten years later, Americans are still wondering if it was wise to sacrifice some privacy and freedoms in order to fight terrorism.

The foundation that built the Pentagon memorial raised $22 million — the entire cost of construction — between 2004 and 2008. But a permanent memorial for the victims of Flight 93 is still $10 million short of its goal.
