I lost two college friends in the devestation of the 9/11 attacks, one whom I had made some great memories with at school. Even though we hadn't spoken in years, his death in the Twin Towers at the hands of evil, will always give me cause to remember him as he was. Young and vibrant with his whole life of potential ahead of him.
Eight years later, we reflect upon how we, as a country, lost our innocence that day.
Today I pause to remember all who died, and will never forget.
