Ten years ago today, the lives of many Americans were changed forever.
For many, lives were lost.
Fathers, mothers, husbands, wives, sisters, brothers.
For these individuals, life changed in a drastic way,
and in a way that I can't begin to fathom.
For me personally, the changes were subtle.
Terrorism became more than a word, it became an action.
The idea of "war" became a reality.
Today, I hope we can take time to remember those whose lives were lost.
I also hope we will remember those who become heroes that day,
and those who are still fighting for our freedom today.
