On September 11, 2001 my parents were visiting my sister and her family in Pennsylvania. Shanksville is only 34 miles from where she lives. I called to ask if they had the TV on. They did not, and the plane had not yet crashed. We watched together in horror, they in Pennsylvania and I in Maine.
I will never forget all those lives lost on that field in Pennsylvania, the towers in New York City, and at the Pentagon.
