I don't live anywhere near New York City, but 9/11 is indelibly imprinted on my mind as it is in millions of others'. Where was I? Home. Safe. Secure.
Our television was off, so I learned about the horrific attack on our nation through a frantic phone call from a friend. All feelings of safety and security fled, at least for a while. As I watched the replays, and followed the events from afar, my heart was filled with sorrow for those families who were forever impacted. I still feel sadness. Not only were their lives intimately touched, but an entire nation was changed. We pulled together, and we've carried on.
I, for one, will never forget the heroes of nine-eleven nor those whose lives were senselessly ended. We who remain, and remember, can honor them through memory and action. God Bless America!
