This is a HDR photograph of the 9/11 memorial created by Cape Fear Community College interior design students. The memorial was unveiled to the public and dedicated on September 11, 2011 at a ceremony in Castle Hayne, North Carolina.
September 11th, 2001 was such a terrible day that I’ll never forget. On this day 10 years ago, I was at work in Bristow, Virginia at New Skies Satellites in the Network Operation Center. It was so surreal to witness the tragic events of this day. In the face of evil, the world changed on this day. The loss of lives of loved ones on that day and in the wars to follow are so tragic. As a veteran of the United States Army, this consequences of this tragic event hit home for me in a very real way. My fellow service members would be called upon to defend our country again. It was time for my generation to face this latest incarnation of evil that plagues our world. I knew 9/11 that at some point, the United States of America would call its greatest treasures, its men and women, to go to war. The ripples from this dark day continue to touch the lives of people around the world unto this very second. I pray for the day peace when abounds, when the great sons and daughters of this country no longer have to wage war. I’ll never forget nor should the rest of humanity forget how 9/11 change the history of earth!
