Tonight will be a special night for US fans. The USMNT will take on Jamaica at Crew Stadium, in what some are saying is a must-win World Cup qualifier. However, today of all days we are reminded of what is really important.
Tonight, the men who will take the field to represent our country will not simply be aiming to qualify for another World Cup. Tonight they will no doubt carry with them the remembrance of the those who fell on that fateful day 11 years ago. Tonight will be a night to play in honor of the real heroes, those who have sacrificed and continue to sacrifice so much to preserve our way of life.
Here are just a few examples of the remembrances coming from around the US soccer world.
Let’s join them in remembering today!
