A nation struck by terror Sept. 11, 2001, pauses in 2019, 18 years after the attacks on the twin towers in New York and the Pentagon and the crashed hijacked plane in Pennsylvania, to remember those lost and those whose lives were forever changed. 

Coming to Enid in 1993, weeks before the Land Run of 1893 centennial, I fell in love with the heritage. I started as Enid News & Eagle education, legislative and business reporter, was promoted to news editor in 1999 and currently am digital coordinator.
