Nine years ago today our family was flying from Raleigh-Durham to Atlanta to connect to Grand Cayman Island for a family vacation. Upon arriving in Atlanta at the E Concourse the world forever changed as we stood in horror watching the TV broadcast as the Twin Towers and the United States came under attack.

Today as we were flying home and again connected through Atlanta, I experienced those same haunting, sickening feelings of that day. I promised to never forget those innocent souls and the heroes who perished attempting to save others. I also pledge to keep the members of our military in my thoughts and prayers as they protect our nation against future attacks.
