For those of us who were alive and old enough to remember, September 11 was a shocking and tragic day. It was one of those moments that 22 years later you remember where you were and what you were doing when the news broke. Co-workers who were in the towers that day were lucky to make it out. And a close call for a relative of a co-worker who didn’t get on the plane.
More than 5,000 people have died that day and in the years since from health related complications. More have died and been injured in the wars since. Many, many events and changes to life ensued to protect the homeland. Some changes were small, while others have had a permanent impact on life.
Consequential moments in time are worth remembering.
