Later that day, early evening, the trains, packed with horrified people, many covered in soot, began to shuttle us home. It was silent, but for the clanking of the wheels and the subtle sobbing of many. I can still feel the hollowness in my stomach as I think about that day. I will never forget, but will never let the murderous actions prevent me or my family from living our lives.
If nothing else we owe it to those we lost to live, not recklessly, but freely in memory and honor of what was taken from them.
Tomorrow, I will still be with my beautiful wife, my sons will be 13 and 11 and my daughter will be 2 1/2. I am so very lucky to be here today and I will run for the nearly 3,000 people who were murdered that day and their families. Let's all remember and live in Peace!
