by Samantha Whidden

On the 20th anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks, former NCIS: New Orleans star Lucas Black took to his social media accounts to honor those who perished on that fateful day with a prayer. 

“9/11 We will always Remember,” Lucas Black states in his post. “The images of that day will live in our minds forever. And they should. So many emotions. So many thoughts.”

Lucas Black explains that to him, the attacks showed that there is evil in the world and it will do anything to destroy good. “It also shows me that good overcomes. It shows me that humans can believe in something bigger than themselves and have the courage to sacrifice much for what they believe in.”

Black then reveals that the images of the attacks remind him of the foundation that the U.S. was built on. “‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal. That they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights. That among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.’ That will always be under attack.”

How are you standing courageously for Freedom?”

They talked about what happened. “Those who died, the stories of survivors, the courageous first responders. We joined hands and said a prayer. Thank you to those who went toward the chaos.”
