"If we learn nothing else from this tragedy, we learn that life is short and there is no time for hate."- Sandy Dahl, the wife of Flight 93 pilot Jason Dahl, speaking in 2002.

We remember where we were and what we were doing.
We remember how we stood as a nation and mourned.
We remember all the civilians and first responders whose lives were lost 18 years ago.
It was the day that changed the nation forever.
We will never forget!!!
