  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Thirteen years ago, on September 11, 2001, one of the most tragic and horrifying events in human history shook our world. Not only America, but the whole world lost her innocence that precise moment, when a dirty, disgusting face of mass terrorism emerged to brutally torture the mankind. The world realized that this new evil is perpetrated by shameless barbaric fanatics who are utterly indifferent to the sanctity of human life. America became stronger than ever before to fight the terrorism, and wiped out a major chunk of psychopathic terrorist evil to make our world safer once again. At the 13th anniversary of 9/11, our heart still aches for all those innocent lives who were ruthlessly killed by terrorist activities. It's so sad, depressing, disgusting story, and yet its aftermath is remarkably inspirational when we think about how America and many nations came together to relentlessly destroy the axis of evil, capture and bring to justice the toxic terrorists - including their leader Osama. On this 13th Anniversary, we pay our respectful tribute to the martyrs of 9/11 attack, and sincerely thank our awesome American Heroes who are still fighting those freaky fanatic terrorists to make our world a better place. God Bless You All, and God Bless America.
