It is well documented that America has had many defining moments. Perhaps the starting point being shots fired at Concord & Lexington, Pearl Harbor, the assassinations of Abe Lincoln, JFK, and MLK. And more recently the terrible event of Sept. 11, 2001.

In times like these, America seems to get stronger, more resolved to right a wrong, and more united. However, such strength, resolve, unity, and often memory of these events fade with time.
