Seven years sounds like a long time, but it feels like it was just last year.

I still remember being told by my mom that someone had crashed a plane into one of the twin towers as I was getting ready for work. I remember thinking it was just some idiot in a Cessna. I remember watching live as the second plane hit. I remember my stomach turning, and my whole body go numb as I realized this was no accident. I remember seeing people falling to their death. I remember seeing the towers fall straight down. I remember the reports of the other plane crashing into the Pentagon, and another one crashing into a field, and seeing the aftermath of both crashes. I remember going to work that day, and wondering if something may be tried on the California college that I work at. I remember seeing on the overtaxed internet news the additional buildings surrounding The Towers fall.

I also remember the unity of our Nation as people opened up their hearts to the families that had lost so much. I remember the emergency responders that had saved so many lives that day at the cost of their own. I remember the people that came from all over the country to search for any survivors, and helped save even more lives, and never gave up for days to come. I remember they helped and bring closure to some families that had lost a loved one.

I do remember and I will never forget why we persevere to eradicate the terrorist responsible.

I just read about the test fire of the LHC and the first thing that pops into my head is the start of HALF LIFE. "Gordon, push the sample into the beam."
