Nine years ago tonight, I was stuck in Atlanta, the first real day on the job with my new company, wondering when I’d get home and pondering how the world had changed after the attacks on everything we stood for.

In the immediate response after the attacks, we saw the heroics that define us as a country.  Those heroics are remembered today because many of those heroes lost their lives in trying to save others. 

In the nine years since the attack, thousands of other heroes have sacrificed their lives to protect our freedoms and to liberate others from the oppressive regimes that control their day to day lives.

As today winds down, I’m praying for all of our heroes and thanking God for those who selflessly serve, even to the point of giving their own lives for others in need who they may or probably may not know.

Today is definitely a day to pause and remember.
