I never thought that I'd experience an event as an American so significant that I'd remember where I was, what I was doing, and how I felt at that exact moment. I was a sophomore at Texas A&M and was up early to head to the Rec for a work out before class. I remember listening to the radio on the way over. I got on the treadmill in between two other girls that I knew and as we were all running, we watched the second plane crash into the tower. Everyone in the gym stopped, gathered together in front of the tv's, held hands, and began to pray.
A few days later, our Aggie Family did one of the most incredible things I've ever seen. I had never been more proud to be an American and an Aggie as I was on that day.
Take a few minutes today to think about what freedom truly means to you and pray for those who make it possible for you to live your life as you please. Thank you to all the brave men and women, and their families, willing to sacrifice their lives for our liberty.
