I was at the gym that morning when everything got quiet. I didn't notice at first, but then everyone started to gather around the TV in the lobby. I saw the image of the second plane hit and left immediately to go home to Missy. For the next several hours and days we sat together and watched in horror as our world changed forever.
Today, we mourn the losses and celebrate the lives of all who were taken by evil that day. We also thank the members of our military and their families who continue to sacrifice in the name freedom around the world. May The Lord hold close and comfort their families and friends, and may we, as a nation, never forget.
