When asked to pen a 9/11 commemoration article for National Underwriter, I have to admit I was a little overwhelmed. Not being directly affected by the loss of family or friends, I was afraid I could not convey the magnitude or the emotional impact of the event.

However, once I started thinking back to that day, I realized that I remember more detail about the events that occurred than just about any other day in my life. Not to say that I know or understand the loss of those directly affected, but I can simply reflect on the impact that this day had in the life of an American who experienced it and, hopefully, relay the importance of preserving that memory.
