Sandy Dahl, wife of the pilot of Flight 93 Jason Dahl, said, “If we learn nothing else from this tragedy, we learn that life is short and there is no time for hate.” I believe that this quote perfectly addresses the horror and loss that the terrorist attacks on 9/11 brought Americans. Sandy Dahl could have been angry, aggressive, or even belligerent following the 9/11 attacks, but instead Dahl very maturely used the events as a life lesson that helped her appreciate the lives we do have. She now understands that one should not waste what little life we do have, and this is so true for every single one of us.

The memorial would be the national monument that pays respect to the World Trade Centers. The purpose of it would not only to remember the event but also to use it to unify us as a country as learn from it to make us a happier people.
