On this very day (Tuesday), September 11, 2001, from 8:46 a.m. to 10:28 a.m. our world changed forever. Today I pause to honor those who lost their lives and those who lost loved ones. Both deserve to be remembered for it is not just those lost but those left behind who deserve mention. On this day when the world changed for everyone. On this day when for a short time fear attempted to over take us. But it was on this day that hope rose out of the ashes and it was on this day that we rose up against that which tried to overtake us. It was on this day that we remembered who we were and who we could become. It was on this day we pressed forward. It was on this day we came together. It is this day we should never forget!
