In a way 9/11 triggered my childhood fascination for writing.
2001 was the year, I got my PPL. I could finally become a full member of the 99s. It was the year I took over as the editor of the Slipstream, the newsletter for my local chapter.
It was the year, I started my blog. Sadly enough the first ever article I ever posted was an editorial in the Slipstream entitled: We will never forget.
Here is a link to what I posted on my blog last year: We will always remember.
And the link to an article I posted on the tenth anniversary: This day, Ten Years Ago.
It is a great country we live in. In memory of that day, and all the freedoms we have fought to retain, I flew this morning down the Potomac river for a practice flight and on a good note I have my sign off finally for my commercial check ride!
