Heroes
Romance authors write about fictional heroes. But today, on 9/11, it’s important to stop and remember the real-life heroes from that awful day in 2001. I'm talking about the firefighters and police officers who responded to the terrorist plane attacks at the World Trade Center, the office workers who helped each other down endless flights of stairs as they made their way out of the burning buildings, the passengers on board United flight 93, who prevented a worse tragedy from happening in Washington, DC. Heroes all.

I’ve often wondered how I would respond in an emergency like that?

Spencer Stone, Alek Skarlatos and Anthony Sadler showed us how. Adrenaline, courage, and, according to Alek’s dad, “patriotism” allowed the lifelong friends to storm an armed terrorism suspect on a Paris-bound train last month, saving countless lives.

But heroes don’t always do big things. They’re the volunteers in this country who help out at soup kitchens, tutor underprivileged students, provide a ride for a neighbor to a doctor’s appointment. Not big things, no, but those small things are big to the people on the receiving end.

Who was it who said, “To the world you might be one person, but to one person you just might be the world?”

Take a moment today to remember the victims of 9/11 in New York, Washington, and a lonely field in Pennsylvania, as well as the brave men and women who rushed to help.

Heroes all.
