I had a film class in the MOA auditorium at BYU that morning and as I walked through the door, images of burning buildings were projected onto the big screen. I stood there dumbfounded as my professor told us that class was canceled, to go home and watch the news.
As I walked home across campus, I thought of how Jon had just left on his mission the day before and had an irrational fear that his was one of those planes.
It's hard to remember what life was like before "9-11." I know that I took for granted how safe our country was compared to other parts of this world and I guess I still do. For the most part, we have things pretty good.
It's tragic that something like 9-11 happened to us, but an important reminder of how tenuous something like national security and freedom really are.
