9/11: Never forget

My editorial this week for The Universe is on 9/11. It was a bit emotional to write, but I'm very grateful to have the opportunity to talk about it in a more formal setting.

It is emotionally difficult to remember the events of 9/11. Planes slammed into buildings; smoke and flames billowed over skylines. People jumped to their deaths rather than slowly succumb to smoke and fire. First responders fought to save victims and became victims themselves. Towers fell, and walls crumbled. But on that day we came together as a nation, and we can't forget that we must stand together as a nation always. I remember firefighters raising an American flag over the remnants of the World Trade Center. I remember the American flag being draped over the wall of the Pentagon by firefighters and military personnel.

United we stand.
Never forget.
