Some were inspired by the day’s events and sought a life of public service.
I was in 9th grade when 9/11 occurred. I knew shortly after that day the military would be in my future. I still watch documentaries of that day and feel so sorry for the victims. But I also feel sad/angry for some aspects of the wars that followed the attacks. #September11 pic.twitter.com/0ujhA7M9gz
