Remembering 9/11

Today we remember the dreadful events of that otherwise beautiful morning on September 11th, 2001. Like me, I'm sure you remember exactly where you were when you saw those civilian airliners crash into the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. It was a terrible day and one we must always remember. 

While no country is perfect, as a Canadian I've always been happy to have the United States as a neighbour and, as any reader of this blog knows, love their comic books and popular culture very much. So to remind us all of America's spirit and its ability and willingness to tackle the villians of the world, I've attached two images of Nick Fury, Captain America and S.H.I.E.L.D. The art is from the great Jim Steranko. Lest We Forget.
