John Slaughter’s 9/11 Memory

I was going into our Administration Building early that morning and saw what was happening on a TV up on the wall. My first reaction was shock that this could happen and that anyone would be so evil to want to take innocent lives. My next thought was how am I going to explain this to my three daughters who are 9, 7 and 4. I wish express my thanks to our firefighters, police and military who put their lives on the line everyday to protect us and help to give us the freedom. Also, I pray for the families who lost loved ones in this terrible event. And I want to thank God for giving us such a great country that can withstand the evil that is always present and hope everyone keeps him in the forefront of their lives as we do not forget our past and push on to our future.
