September 11, 2001 and 2021
On September 11, 2001, Cindy and I watched in horror with the rest of the world as nearly 3,000 people lost their lives. We were planning on leaving the next day for a Disney vacation to celebrate our first anniversary. We contemplated canceling the trip, knowing that Disney was a potential terrorist target, but we decided to keep our plans to not let terrorists win. Now, another tragic loss of American lives is happening. Yesterday, we lost more than 2,400 American lives to Covid-19. My prayers are with those who lost loved ones 20 years ago and yesterday.
