As I sit here writing this on the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks that forever changed our nation and cost the lives of nearly 3,000 people, it’s hard not to be reminded of the day that brought terror to the homes of families across the globe.

A quick scroll through social media results in countless posts memorializing those who lost their lives, not just in the attacks but in the military operations that followed.
