I will never forget where I was on 9/11/01. I am sure you are the same.
I was an Active Duty Officer in the US Air Force, and my life and the life of my husband who is a pilot in the US Air Force were forever changed. In no way, though, were they changed nearly as much as those who lost loved ones in this horrific attack on America.
Nearly 3,000 people died when the four planes crashed in New York, at the Pentagon and in a Pennsylvania field.
I hope we can all take time today to pause and reflect on this tragedy in American history, and that we can all renew our efforts at volunteerism - the likes of which so proudly shone in the actions of the heroes associated with the aftermath of the different plane crashes. If we are citizens of, or live in the United States, I also hope that our patriotism can always be as strong as it was in the days and weeks following this tragic event.
