Five years ago today America changed forever. United Airlines Flight 175 and American Airlines Flight 11 crashed into the World Trade Center. Within two hours, Tower 1 and Tower 2 were no more. A third plane, American Airlines Flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon, and United Airlines Flight 93 crashed in a field near Shanksville, Pennysylvania. As I watched the reports of the day’s events being reported, the true definition of HERO emerged that day. I was humbled and still am today.
As you are moving about your day, take a moment to remember not only those who were lost, but those who were left behind.
