Never Forget – Never Again.

            I was watching a 9/11 memorial program yesterday, and found I couldn’t stand to see the images.  It just makes me angry and awakens emotions I’d rather leave alone.  Ten years ago today the trajectory of my life changed forever, as did the lives of just about every single person I know.  I’m sure it’s the same for anyone reading this post.  I remember that day very well.  I was on alert status and doing some ordinary prep for training.  I remember walking through the squadron bay and seeing a couple guys staring at the TV.  They said a plane had crashed into the World Trade Center.  I had little time to waste, and went about my day.  The next time I came through the bay, a crowd of thirty had gathered, and I found out that incredibly another plane had hit the second tower of the World Trade Center.  I watched as long as I could, finally pulling myself away to finish preparations for training downrange.
