September 11, 2010 marks the ninth anniversary of the terrorist attacks in New York City, the Pentagon, and Shanksville, Pennsylvania. While the attacks physically hit those three locations, they emotionally and psychologically hit the entire nation. That day was one of those defining moments in our history and in our lives–much like the attacks on Pearl Harbor nearly seventy years ago. Words do little justice to express the emotions that many of us felt on that day, but on that day, we came together.
May we never forget. American Airlines Flight 11, American Airlines Flight 77, United Airlines Flight 175, United Airlines Flight 93. New York City, Shanksville, Arlington. Men, women, children. Every race. Every background. 3,017 died. More than 6,000 injured. May we never forget.
