The events of that day touched me in a way I did not know it could. This is my story of that day. In memory of those we lost, the Song of the Day in the sidebar will remain silent today, and this post will be published at 8:45 am, the exact moment that American Airlines Flight 11 struck the North Tower, 13 years ago today. I hope you’ll all take a moment to remember today. Thank you to all of you that have been reading.] Read the rest . . .
