  • The memory of 9/11 is still fresh in the minds of many, even after 10 years. But for those minds that never really understood what happened, the confusion of that day is as memorable as the tragedy itself.
    On Sept. 11, 2001, I woke up early to prepare for the day ahead. I don’t remember what I ate, what I wore or any conversations I had. I do remember it was a Tuesday and I was in the 7th grade. Tuesdays were my dad’s days to come pick me up – my favorite day of the week.

  • On the day this summer that Jimmy Hornback and William Hutcherson received commissions as second lieutenants in the U.S. Army they found out that their grandfathers had also entered the service together in January 1945.
