That is a day that we will never forget.
Those of us that experienced that tragic day will always remember exactly what we we were doing when we found out that the world was a much scarier place than we had imagined. That people could be so evil and that so many innocent lives could be lost in one day. That there are heroes among us in our everyday lives. That we as Americans should never let this happen again.
I was 18 years old and had just moved into the dorms at San Diego State University. I was down having breakfast with my roommate when we saw the unthinkable on the TV screen. All of our classes were cancelled and we were all glued to the television that morning, watching things unfold. It was so scary and to this day, that day still scares me.
We should never, ever forget that day.
Here's to all that was lost that tragic day, eleven years ago.
