"Terrorist attacks can shake the foundations of our biggest buildings, but they cannot touch the foundation of America. These acts shatter steel, but they cannot dent the steel of American resolve. We will make no distinction between the terrorists who committed these acts and those who harbor them."-President George W. Bush on 9-11-01
Page 3 of Some Monument to Last: "When 9-11 happened I was working at KTRE in Lufkin, Texas, I was upset I wasn’t covering the story more up close and personal. It was my day off and my phone rang several times, waking me up. I listened to the messages, one of which was my sister telling me she was praying for me. I turned on the TV and fell to my knees. I said a quick prayer and went to work. All those children left without a mother or father—it was the first time I realized I wasn’t alone as the only kid who would grow up without a dad."
Today on the 10th Anniversary of 9-11, I was able to see those children read the names of those who died. Always in my prayers. -JMD
