Sept. 11, 2001. The day the world ended. A horrific terrorist attack filled the skies with smoke and fire, claiming the lives of nearly 3,000 precious human beings--people of all ages and backgrounds, who had their lives ripped away from them in a heinous act of terrorism.
Sept. 12, 2001. The day a new world began. For while the dreadful events of Sept. 11 did indeed devastate this nation, they did not destroy us. And as we arose from the ashes in the fashion of a collective phoenix, we had a tool in our arsenal far more powerful than a gun or a bomb. We had love.
