Ten years ago I was a senior in high school and I was sitting in my first period English class.
I remember my teacher coming into class late. I remember the expression on her face. I remember her telling her class of seniors what had just happened. I remember the silence that fell over the room.
Ten years later and I still remember every detail.
Today we honor and remember those who lost their lives that day and their families. We thank the firefighters, police officers, and other first responders that put their lives on the line to save the lives of others. We thank our troops who have fought and are fighting for our country. We remember.
