Take A Moment To Pause And Reflect Today

Posted by Mike Wobschall on September 11, 2011 – 10:14 am

Today is one of the most exciting days of the year for football fans. It’s the NFL’s regular season opener. As excited as we are and should continue to be throughout the day, I also think it’s important to take a moment to pause and reflect. Today is the 10-year anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

The Vikings play a mid-afternoon game today in San Diego, so there are a bunch of games that will begin before the Vikings take the field. You’ll likely see a lot of acknowledgment of the 10-year anniversary in other games, and I think every second spent doing this is appropriate.

This day means something different for everybody. We were all impacted by the events of that day and the 10 years following that day, but we were all impacted in our own personal way. Today is a good day to reflect on that, and to be thankful for those who protect our country, our cities and our communities.

    Unbelievable National Anthem to open today’s game … and during a special moment! Can’t the NFL get people who can actually sing to do the National Anthems? And can’t they sing it straight, as it was written? That woman was terrible!
