    I’m from Barcelona and it’s a holiday here. Twelve years ago I was watching the news after lunch when it all happened. Even though I’m far away my heart goes out with all of you who suffered the tragedy. It’s impossible for me not to think about it every single year.

  • Sabrina Jackson

    I was a senior in high school when the towers were hit. My entire second period class was in shock and disbelief. It hit us pretty hard but has come to mean so much more to me since meeting my husband. He is a former Marine and everyday he was out there trying to prevent tragedies like this from happening again. He’s no longer in now but most of our close friends still are and currently deployed. It always seems to hit a little harder when you have friends and loved ones deployed (at least for me anyway). Today, I’m taking a moment (or two) to think about all those we lost that day and those we lost since then fighting for us, as well as their families and the heartache they must be dealing with.

    I was in 10th grade, 2nd period, social studies. I remember another teacher coming into the room, telling us to turn on the tv because an airplane accidentally flew into the world trade center. It wasn’t long after we got the TV on, that the second plane hit, and of course not long after that, that we started questioning that it didn’t happen on purpose. I remember going from class to class, and tv to tv, throughout the school day, just watching the smoke and chaos. I also remember the days and months following and how much the country was unified. It was a sad day, and still is every year after.

  • Laura C

    I was in 3rd grade at the time, but I remember that day so clearly. Even though I was young, I saw the panic in the teacher’s faces as we turned on the tv and watched the news. Many kids left that day and when my mom picked me up from school, the whole night we sat as a family in the living room watching the news. I know that I didn’t comprehend the vastness of the tragedy at the time, and even though I was young girl, I remember the fear and sadness like it was yesterday.

  • Kelly

    I was a sophomore in high school sitting in my World History class. The teacher from across the hall ran into our classroom and said to turn the TV on because one of the Towers had been hit. As soon as we turned on the TV, we saw the second tower get attacked. That day stopped at my school. We all were told to go back to our homerooms. I attended an all-girls Catholic School and there was an immediate mass held.

    My family lost a family member that day in the Towers. Not a day goes by that I don’t think about 9/11 and how it forever changed not only my family, but the families who lost a Father, Mother, Daughter, Son, Sister, Brother, Aunt, Uncle, Grandparent, Cousin, or a Friend.

    Never forget.

  • Lee-Ann van Rooyen

    I’m from South Africa, and at that time I was 12 years old. Probably didn’t know what was going on or what happened. BUT i share the tears and sadness with these people and WILL keep them in my thoughts especially today.

    It is all over our radio stations and news – 911.

    South Africa will keep these family and friends in our thoughts xxx

  • Susan Yunkes

    I was a freshman in middle school.. The bell had just rang for 1st period. The Principal came on the intercom to tell the teachers to TURN OFF the tvs.. my teacher kept it on.. I could see the fear on all my teachers faces.. my math teacher said This means war….

  • Idelsa

    I was in sixth grade when that towers were attacked. I remember my literature teacher wasn’t there she was held in traffic because of something that was going on in the city. In math class at second period I remembered Mrs. H told us that there was an attack on the World Trade Center, and that the city is paralyzed that’s why the literature teacher wasn’t there. I remember my world stopping and staying in that same place for a while. After that all I remember was my mom picking up my cousin and I from school and taking us home. I remember seeing the images and seeing people jump to their death. Not a day goes by that I’m not scared.
    Even after being in college and going to school in the city, it sometimes scared me what if I entered the train one day and I wouldn’t come out alive because I would be bombed? A few years ago I came to learn the story of an FBI special agent his name was Leonard W Hatton. He was on his way to work and he saw what was going on and he went in to resume people, he came out with some people and went back in to get out some more he never made it out. He is my hero and I wish someday to be like him. I didn’t lose anyone close but that doesn’t mean I don’t think about those who have lost lives. Every time I look at the city buildings I think of them and know somehow they all are looking down upon us.
    I some times wonder how a beautiful day like 9/11/01 that was so calm and everything seemed normal changed our lives to live in fear.
    If any one reads this and they lost family there my heart and prayers will always go out to you and your loved ones

  • Allie

    I was in 2nd grade so I remember very little because I was so young and really had no idea what was happening. What I do remember is my teacher turning on the TV with a look of panic and sadness and then when I went home that night my mom was very emotional and distraught. I remember hearing her tell my dad that I was the exact same age as my Grandma was when Pearl Harbor happened.

  • Ennr

    I was on holiday with my family in Spain, i was 15, i came inside to get my friend and he was watching it on the tv, i thought he was watching a movie, we watched the second place hit live. I will never forget it. NYC has my heart today. For all the families, with lives lost, or affected, in any way, i send love and light.

  • Shannon

    I was a junior and sitting in 3rd hour English class when we received work of the attack over the PA. As kids, sometimes I think we have no real sense of our world around us, but what a period of growth for many as we saw this tragedy unfold. Prayers for those affected.

  • Kailee Johnson

    I am from the UK and remember so well I had come home from school aged 14 to find my older sister in front of the television watching the news of the attack – we sat for hours watching the news channels so upset for all those involved and across America as a whole. Even being from another country every time I think of it, it brings tears to my eyes and shivers across my body – my heart really goes out to all those families who lost loved ones and I have a huge respect for those brave men and women who helped in the rescue efforts. my thoughts and love are with you all x

  • vivdepalma

    I was in my 7th grade math class, thinking about it now I remember the whole school being silent but no one would tell us what was going on. I lived in Maryland at the time, about 40 minuets away from D.C. we would hear classmates names being called to the office and instructed to bring their stuff with them. As soon as I was off the bus I ran home to see what was going on and found my father there. At the time he was working at the Pentagon but luckily enough had to do a job elsewhere down the street. I remember watching the t.v with him in complete silence and fear.

  • Ladyday1928

    I was just starting college and my mom came in my room to tell me what had happened. I remember just sitting and watching the TV not blinking. When the second tower was hit, I knew that it was going to fall. When it did, I just held my breath. We had friends of the family at the Pentagon and were waiting to hear if they were alright. It took two days after and they were fine just helping out. I live by the Dulles Airport and I hear planes all the time. Once all planes were grounded I remember how quite the sky was. About three years later I went with my Mom, and brother to Shanksville Pennsylvania were flight 93 went down. It was an experience I’ll never forget. When ever I hear emergency sirens or airplanes I think of that day. Like all things that happened on 9/11, I’ll never forget. I pray and think of the families, the victims, the military everyday. Just know you will not be forgotten and that you are loved by so many.

  • Emily Nace

    I didn’t have school that day but I remember being in Toys R Us with my mom buying my sister a birthday gift because her birthday was two days later. We went to the front of the store and everyone was crying and calling loved ones. My mom who works for the government called her office to hear more. She didn’t want to tell me what was happening because she didn’t want to scare me, but I knew something was wrong. The look on so many peoples faces as we watched the news. I remember crying a lot and not understanding how someone could do something so bad.

  • Katelin Absher

    I was in my 8th grade history class. The crazy thing is, I had no clue what the twin towers even were. I get chills looking at the images from that day and continue to pray for the families who lost loved ones. Never forget 9/11!! One Nation Under God.


  • DJ_Kitty_VanPurrrr

    My dad is in the military, and was in during 9/11. I was on my way to the bus stop when my mum tells me to get back inside. We used to live on a military base and we got closed off. No one could get in or out. We watched everything on TV. It was really scary.

  • Lee-Ann van Rooyen

    I’m from South Africa, and at that time I was 12 years old. Probably didn’t know what was going on or what happened. BUT i share the tears and sadness with these people and WILL keep them in my thoughts especially today.

  • Kaitlyn Curci

    I was 11, in tech drawing class in 6th grade. Teacher: Mr. Lightbody. The firmest teacher in middle school, who was now in tears. He would not speak to us & No one would tell us what’s going on, then kids kept being pulled from school. Eventually we all left, and i went home n watched tv.Then I walked to the beach with my best friend and watched them from across the water. Ash & soot everywhere. Saddest day ever, I will never forget it.

  • Bernie

    I was stationed at mildenhall AB in England.I just got off a night shift and called my sister back in the states and as we were talking, the pentagon was hit. I had to get off phone and go back to work. The base was recalling everyone and going into delta. It was shocking what happens.

  • Kelly Lynne

    6th grade…even though I was young, I will never forget.
    XO. Our Country is strong.

  • Ash

    My dad and I were getting in the car to drive to school when my neighbor came running out yelling “”turn on your radio, turn on your radio!””. He was so frazzled he was out of breath. We listened to the radio on the way to school and even though I was only 12 and didn’t really understand what was happening, I could tell it was serious because my dad didn’t say a word the whole ride until the usual “”I love you, have a good day”” when I got to school. At the beginning of first period, the principal came on the PA system to announce that the guidance office and other help were available for those who needed it. Our teacher was really confused and asked us what was going on. A bunch of 7th graders had to tell her the news. My mom calls 9/11 the JFK assassination of our generation—the national event with which everyone will always remember exactly where they were and what they were doing when they heard the news. It’s amazing how such a large-scale event can trickle down to the individual.

  • Lilian santos

    I was at school and when I got home I was scared about what happened.
    That God continue comforting the hearts of the families of the victims and the American heroes. Our hearts will always be with them all.

  • Amanda Kretchmer

    This day is so vivid in my mind. I was in my 8th grade science class when a teacher from across the hall came in and told my science teacher that he had better turn on the television set. They then both went out into the hallway to talk amongst themselves. Our teacher eventually came back in and turned on the television. I remember him saying to remember where we were and what we were doing at that time, it was someting we would never forget, and I never have. My heart goes out to all of those who have been affected by this senseless tragedy.

  • Kelly C.

    I was 20 years old and a junior in college. I had stayed home that day because I was going to pick up my kitten that had just gotten spayed at the vet. I was up early watching the Today show and was in complete shock over what happened. I literally sat staring at the tv for the entire day, I even saw the second plane hit the WTC. It was devastating. Being from CT, it was very close to home for me.

  • Ana Sofia

    I’m not american but in that day and despite I was only 11 years, this was a shocking moment that I remember very well. I was doing my homework and the TV is on and at beginning I thought “”it could not be true””. It was one of the worst days that I remember.


  • Alice919

    I am from Washington, DC and was a senior in high school on 9/11. I remember the school keeping us in the building that morning and then rolling out the televisions so we could watch the news just in time to see the second plane hit the twin towers. I thought that I was watching my Aunt die as she worked in the towers until a few months prior but I hadn’t been informed that she had changed jobs. My family lived on Capitol Hill near the Capitol building so I couldn’t return home all day because the city locked down. I stayed across town at a friend’s house until the evening when I drove home down eerily quiet streets. I drove past the Pentagon a few days later and saw the gaping hole in the side of the building and almost broke down crying on the highway. I had friends who worked at the Pentagon and narrowly missed being at the crash point that morning. Seconds and inches. My city and my entire life changed after that day.

  • Rhazel

    I was waking up for high school, and my alarm was my tv. I was living in California ad my alarm was my tv. I woke up to the news of the first tower being hit. I was confused, and it wast dads birthday so I was trying to get out of bed quickly to wake him up and say happy birthday. As I was watching the live news cast, I watched te second plane fly into the second tower. My stomach dropped. I ran downstairs and woke up my dad. His birthday will never be the same again.

  • Nicole

    I was only 10 when 9/11 happened, and I was in 6th grade. We were sitting in the classroom when they came over the speakers and said that the World Trade Centers had been hit. I remember not really knowing what it meant, not really knowing what was going on, and not really knowing what the World Trade Centers were. They turned on the TVs and we watched. All I knew was that something very bad was going on in America.

    When I look back, it’s hard to really remember the emotions I felt that day. I’m 22 now, and I get more and more emotional every year on 9/11. I went to ground zero for the first time last year, and I got to go to the memorial site, that they are still working on. I remember going to the Church right across the street. Inside they have pictures, and letters written to the victims. Some from children, some from parents. You could even leave your own. I remember having to walk out because there was one from a little boy that said “”I miss you daddy. I love you daddy.””… Walking through the memorial and running your hands along the waterfalls and all the names, it’s enough to make you cry. I will never forget going there, ever. And I plan to go back.

    God Bless the victims, the families, the friends, and everyone affected by the tragedy.. and most importantly, God Bless America.

    Be sure to hug your families today.

  • Brittney

    I was a Sohpmore in High School in first period History class when I heard and turned on the TVs. I lost it because my dad was flying back to Chicago that morning from a business trip. I did not know the time of his flight or his flight number so i paniced. I was able to get ahold of my mom and she confirmed that it was not his flight. It was one of the scarest moments of my life, and one of the terrifying days for our Country. My heart has and always will go out to the families with lost love ones.

  • Maria Ayala

    I was in Kindergarten but I remember that day clearly. I was sent home early that day and I can feel the vibes of all the aadults worried. I remember seeing teachers on there phones calling loved ones and me coming home to my sister sitting in the chair crying for the people who were dying and I looked at the screen and they were showing people jumping out of the building and all I could think at that age was “”Why was this happening? Why do they want to die?”” I didn’t understand that it was a terrorist attack. All I understood was that people were dying. It was such a hard thing to comprehend at such a young age. But I give my respects to all the people that died and fought to keep people alive. It was such a sad day.

  • Jenny

    I remember this day so vividly as so many others do, as well. I was living in Colorado and I was in first grade. My school went into lockdown that day as my teachers and faculty kindly tried to explain what had happened to our country.

    When we were finally allowed to go home, my mother picked me up and we arrived home to my dad just sitting on the couch. I will never forgot the sorrow and agony that was on my dad’s face. My father used to work across the street from the towers, so he had been in them multiple times and knew numerous people still working in them. A couple of his friends and prior coworkers passed away that day.

    After reading some of the prior comments to mine this morning, it is clear that this is an event that will never go away for us in our minds; it has been engrained into our culture. Every year in school on September 11th teachers have asked us: where were you, what were you doing? It is truly an event that we will never forget.

    God bless the United States of America, and God bless all of the families and friends affected by these tragedies.

  • Cynda House

    I was a Sophomore in High school sitting in Geography when the news came on and showed what was happening in New York. At first we didn’t know what was going on… we just saw a building on fire. Then we saw it, another plane crashed into the buildings. Everyone started freaking out calling loved ones and hugging each other. It was a really scary day. I remember at drill team practice after school we all did a prayer circle and just talked about life in general. I will never forget where I was and what I was doing. It will be a day that no one will ever forget.

  • Dani marie

    This will be a day I never forget because as this was happening, I was young, about 13 years old and not away of a lot in our country or politics so I had no idea what the twin towers were or where they were located. All of my friends and classmates would ask me if I knew about the twin towers and I kept asking them where they were and they would say New York and naturally I would just say, “”then why does it matter to us?”” It wasn’t until my mom took me out of school and brought me home that I learned the severity of the situation and she explained everything to me. Right then and there, I took up an interest to know what is happening in our country as well as the world. There is a deep sadness in my heart for the families and loved ones lost in such a tragic event but their death will not be in vein. As long as we Americans stand together, their courage will live on through us.

    God Bless America, My Home Sweet Home!

  • Erin D.

    On a trip to NY May 22, 01. It was too foggy that day to go to the top of the WTC, Sherrie & I said to each other “”Don’t worry we can always go up when we come back””…. So I laid down on the ground and took this. Never in a million years could we even fathom imaging these monsterous buildings would be leveled less then 3 months later!! I had recently moved to ATL, Sherrie called me that morning woke me up to tell me a plane crashed into one of the buildings. I thought it was a little plane rolled over went back to sleep until she called again….THEN I turned the tube on and watched in horror………I along with the rest of the nation, was numb for quite a while!! Obviously it all still gives me chills and brings tears to my eyes!! God Bless America and ALL of our soldiers where ever they may be!!!!!

    Side Note…… I can’t figure out how to attach the pic! :/

  • Danielle John

    12 years ago, today, I was sitting in 7th grade homeroom. I remember my teacher rolling out the cart and turning on that big square TV. Just a minute later we saw the second plane hit. I was in complete shock because I had just visited the World Trade Center and remembered exactly what it was like inside on the top floor. I could close my eyes and imagine exactly where the people were having to jump out. It was absolutely horrifying.

    That being said.. I can’t help but think of all the heroism, character and how people came together on that day.

    Here is a great example below. A good friend of mine knew Todd Beamer well and she reminded me of his last words..

    “”Are you guys ready? Let’s roll!”” — Flight 93 passenger Todd Beamer, apparently as a signal to other passengers to attack the hijackers, Sept. 11.

  • daisykatherine

    I was only 7 years old but I remember that moment so vividly. I was sitting in my parents bedroom watching the news repeat the planes hitting the towers over and over and over again. I remember my mom begging my dad not to go into work that day because he worked in San Francisco and she was terrified that the same thing was going to happen there. I didn’t fully understand what was going on but it’s a day that I will never forget.

  • Jackelin

    I wrote about this tragic experience…It’s something you can’t just forget even if you were only in 4th grade..


  • Emmakay7

    I was just 4 years old, but I remember very clearly sitting on my mum and dad’s bed and watching the news footage. Prayers are with all those affected by this horrible event.

    Thank you everyone for sharing your personal stories in remembrance of this tragedy.

    Be sure to look through other Laurenconrad.com members’ comments, too! It is amazing to hear all the different memories of this day.

  • Mia Boyd

    Today is a sad day thinking about all the children that lost their parents, grandparents, and extended family. I was very young at the time but since, I have read many storys of the ones that have died and their familys.

  • Susy Gonzalez

    I was 6 yrs old in the first grade sitting in our music class and the principal had made an announce about the tragedy. We had a moment of silence for the lives that were being taking away on this day. TVs were being turned on, felt like the world around us had stopped and we didn’t know what to do. As kids we were terrified. But as the years go on we remember & honor this day. WE REMEMBER<3

  • Mar

    Today is my father’s birthday. His birthday significance has been forever changed in a way.

    I remember it like it was yesterday. I was in 8th grade and in English class when someone came in the room and told our teacher to turn on the news. The remainder of the day no one taught lessons, we just continued watching the news in shock. Never forget 9/11.

  • Kate

    I was 12 years old in 6th grade and remember being at recess when kids started running around telling each other that we had been attacked. Teachers called recess early and directe us to our home rooms where our teachers could tell us what happened. I’ll never forget sitting in that classroom, feeling as if the world shifted beneath my feet learning the news. It was a life altering moment, one in which I can distinctly remember my childhood view of the world dissipating in front of me and replaced with an all too real sense of the evils that can exist around us. You grow up learning of human atrocities in history class but to witness such a senseless and hateful attack on your own soil changes you in an irreversible way. I remember getting off the bus that day to find my dad waiting for me on the driveway and thinking, this must be really bad if he is home, he was never home before 7. He hugged me and took me inside to watch the footage while he held my hand. Thinking about that moment still makes me cry. God bless the lives lost in that day, their families, and everyone who has lost a life fighting to protect those people’s honor.

  • Lindee

    I was a college student at that time and I just remember the professors announcing that class was going to end early. I didn’t know why or what was going on. As soon as I stepped out of class everyone was scrambling and rushing to the parking lot and taking off. I thought maybe there was a threat on campus or fire but something far worst was unfolding as I got home and watched it on every news channel. My heart sank as I sat there and watched. We will always remember this day no matter what.

  • Brittany

    I was six years old. My kindergarten teacher had sent me to take something to the front office. There were two ladies there. One had given the other a birthday card. When the lady opened the card, she started sobbing loudly. I was so confused. When my mom came to pick me up, she looked like she had been crying a lot(obviously) and she was trying to rush home as quickly as possible. 9/11 is the reason why my father had to deploy three times. God bless the families who have lost a loved one that was in the accident. God bless our troops as they stand for our freedom on a daily basis.

  • Chelsea Teutsch

    I don’t think anyone will ever forget where they were, what they were doing, who they were with on this day 12 years ago. I was 11 years old in the 6th grade. While in Senorita Garmendia’s Spanish class, I remember glancing at the clock as the first plane struck the first tower. Of course, I had no idea something as crazy as a plane striking into the WTC would be occurring as I glanced at the clock. Then, we proceeded from first period Spanish to second period. This is when we found out what was happening. As the class watched the news on the TV, we had no idea the severity of what was happening. At this point, just one plane had crashed into the tower, and the word “terrorist” was being discussed on the television, but it wasn’t for certain. While sitting in Mr. Green’s class, our class watched as the second plane went crashing into the second WTC. We all were stunned. Although we were young, we knew what was going on. One of my friends’ dad was in the Pentagon that day. Thankfully, he was alright.

    This day weighs heavily on our hearts.


  • Jen

    I’m not American but Irish and I can tell you that the events that took place that day shocked nations the world over. I was 13 years old and we were told in school as soon as the first plane hit. We rushed home from school that day and when I walked in the door of my house my Mam was glued to the television visibly shaken from what was taking place in front of our eyes. As soon as the second plane hit we knew that something had changed forever and that there were alot of people who lost loved ones on that tragic day. Our hearts went out to you and we felt the loss ourselves in the Irish who were on the plane and in the towers. We will never forget it and the strength of the American people afterwards reminds us of our own determination to battle those who bring war into our peace. Keep on being strong!

    With love xoxo

  • Noeris Gil

    I was in 8th grade. My teacher received a call from her husband telling her to turn on the news. As soon as she did we all watched with horror as the second plane crashed into the other tower. It was a scene that I will never be able to remove from my memory. It will also mark the day that my brother decided to join the army. I hold a deep gratitude in my heart for all those men and women who gave their lives saving others and to all those that serve our country thank you from the deepest part of my heart. To all the survivors and victims families, I pay my respects to you all.

  • dior096

    I am from Scotland but feel so close to America and will never forget that tragic day. Myself and my mum had a moment of silence today and have even thinking of the victims and family members all day wishing them love and peace xxxxxxx

  • Andrea D.

    I was in 5th grade at an elementary school right off the Fort Campbell army base. The majority of the kids, including myself, were raised in army families. I remember my classmates being checked out of school by family members, many with their uniforms on to head out to the base. My dad was one of them. He came to school with my mom to pick my younger brother and I up, hugged us, then left to meet with the others on base. Even in the 5th grade, we knew that something huge had happened and that it was going to take away our dads, moms, siblings, and other family members that served in the military away from us. Thankfully, my Dad returned from overseas after only a few years and was able to retire. My heart still goes out to all of my military family serving, especially the Special Forces. De Oppresso Liber!

  • Katiebug

    I remember being in the 1st grade and hearing about it in school, not really knowing what happened but still knew it was bad.

  • Harmony

    I was on duty as a police dispatcher and it was a very traumatizing day. Everyone was so upset and nervous. Elderly people kept calling 911 thinking we were going to be bombed. We can never forget what the killers did to us. We have to remember and continue to fight to protect our country.

    I was in 6th grade and I heard about it in my English class.

    I was in the Philippines at that time, it was around 5-6am and I was preparing for school when we heard the news. It was really bad and we were scared. We called our relatives working in New York City and we prayed so hard for their safety.

    I am German and felt heart broken yesterday when they played the Enya song which is symbolizing that terrible day for me. Weirdly I still remember exactly what happened on the bespoken September 11th even though I was only 12 years old. Funnily it also started my interest for America. Little did I know that I would visit that country so many times after this life changing event of so many people and nations. I am certainly blessed that I got to know America and fall in love with an West Point cadet. Without September 11th my life would have probably taken a different path… Crazy how this dramatic day changed so many peoples lives!

    We will always think of the victims and the families torn apart!
    God bless America!

    I wasn’t that old, I can just remember I thought something weird was happening, but I didn’t think it was as serious as it was. RIP

    I was a senior in high school, and in my honors econ course. I even remember the exact location of my desk. Our principal came on the intercom and said that a plane hit a building in New York. I remember thinking the way he announced it made it sound like an accident. It wasn’t until the second plane hit that most teachers pulled out tvs in their classrooms and let us watch the coverage. Classes didn’t resume until later in the afternoon, but no one could focus. A few of my classmates knew people in the New York area, so it was somber all around. I still cry thinking about that day. :(

    I live in the U.K but on september the 11th my sister was in New York at the time sightseeing.
    The day before I remember she rang my mum to tell us that she was going in the twin towers to following day, and we thought nothing of it.
    Our relative rang us when it happened and asked where my sister was, she told us to turn on the TV, there was blind panic in our house as we were calling her non stop as she told us she was going in the twin towers that day….it was an emotional time for my family but after a couple of hours of worrying later she called us, she was on a bus at the time, and left new york 2 hours before the tragedy, and she was ok.

    We feel blessed as family, and I will never forget how scared I was for my sister. My heart goes out to all the family’s and people who lost anyone that day, I can’t imagine what they went though…

    Never forget,
    lots of love from England xxx

    I was in 5th grade and I remember my teacher came in holding both of her hands on her cheeks in shock. I really had no idea what terrorism was. I just pray that the good Lord would watch over our country and keep us safe from these evil acts.

    I was in third grade and I remember my dad having to stay at work on the Air Force base for a week or two. I’m so grateful for my dad and all the other members of our Armed Forces. Praying for all the families who lost loved ones that day.
