I was student teaching up North when I heard about the planes hitting the Twin Towers. I knew then that life as we knew it wouldn't be the same.
We learned a lot about what a true hero was that day. And one of mine is Rick Rescorla. If you don't know his story, take a moment to learn about what a amazing man he was. He saved the lives of 2,700 people nine years ago today. An astounding feat by an astounding man.
God bless him.
And may God bless all those we lost that day and all those left behind.
