For as long as I live, I’ll never forget the things I saw and heard eight years ago. My eyes well with tears as I think back on it even now.
I’ll also never forget the pride I felt in the days following the tragedy when we came together as a country, a people. The American flag never had a great deal of meaning for me before that day, but it does now.
God bless the families of the fallen, on this day and all those yet to come.
