It will never be distant history for me.
For me, it is as yesterday. And my anger still burns.
All those hours waiting to hear if two of my homeschool fathers were still alive. Phone services of all types were in a knot, and the wait seemed endless. Both of these men were unharmed, but one had a very close call: he was supposed to be in one of the Pentagon rooms directly hit that horrible morning. Thank God that he was called away to Capitol Hill a mere fifteen minutes before American Airlines Flight 77 struck the Pentagon.
And who can forget watching live the collapse of the Twin Towers after being struck by American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175?
And there were those long minutes awaiting the location of United Airlines Flight 93. Thank God for the patriots aboard that flight.
Yes, eighteen years is a long time ago.
But not for me.
And I will never buy into the whitewash of Islam.
