I remember it was my freshman year in high school. When our Gym class came in from a full hour of soccer outside. The tv showed CNN and the events of NY. Had I known at that point that the events of 9/11 would change my life? No.. I was young and news was not important. Until I sat in my History class and my teacher at the time explaned all the events in more detail to our class. He expressed that from this point on time will change, people will change, and the events of 9/11 will forever be apart of our lives.
My husband joined the USAF for the the sole purpose to make a difference.. to help in the events that occured and to defend the freedom of others in the USA. He was not my husband nor my boyfriend at the time just a friend.. and their I was marrying someone who was apart of the U.S military and a sending him off to fight in a war that directly relates to the attack on 9/11.
I will always remember this day for the ones who serve, protect and fight for our country. However not only the ones who serve the ones who at that moment in time became "HEROS" without even knowing it.. their families and friends are forever in my thoughts and prayers!
