Probably a lot of people are tired from today's date, but for me, I still choke up a little on seeing the photos.

I was about to graduate high school then, and I knew two cousins (one whose mother is a close friend of my mother, so we somewhat considered each other cousins) that were serving in the Army. When my homeroom/history teacher's TV was running CNN and showing the towers collapse through snow static, my first thoughts was "Are they going to be deployed?" I have relatives over in NYC but they live in another part of the island far from where the Towers were, so that was relief for my mother. It was hard to concentrate on the rest of the school day - this was my generation's Pearl Harbor, and I think that thought didn't hit me until much later, and the same goes for the lessons of tolerance from history class and - surprise, surprise - TV shows. It felt that the world had shrunk so much more.

A salute to those on Flight 93.
