It was like any other morning, until my Dad called me into their room to see what was happening across the country. I was a Senior in High School when 9/11 happened. I didn’t know it then how much of an impact that day would have on my life. It changed my course and many others who served after. What I do remember is how we came together as one nation. We emerged stronger and united. One of the worst days in our history, brought us back together. In the face of adversity, tragedy and loss, all Americans brought out the best version of ourselves. We will always remember. We will never forget.
