Abstract AS I STOOD AT THE FLIGHT 93 MEMORIAL WALL watching, the President and First Lady laid a wreath in remembrance of the victims lost on that terrible day. Not a word was spoken, no speeches given, just the somber ceremony of remembrance dedicated to victims of a once unfathomable act of terror. At that moment the thought occurred to me that 10 years had passed by so quickly. It had actually been a decade since we witnessed the horrors attributed to the worst attacks our country had ever known on its soil. The emotion and mourning of millions, along with the unification and anger that followed still seemed new rather than a decade old. I also reflected on other actions that had followed the events of that day, such as military deployments, the eventual fighting, and the additional losses our nation experienced in terms of blood and treasure. We had become a generation defined by the horrendous events of September 11th and the actions which followed.
