The day that changed the world

Today a 5k race was held in my little town of Gorham, located just a few short miles from Portland, Maine. It was from a nearby hotel in Portland, that two evil men left and boarded a plane on September 11th, ten years ago. The world was irrevocably changed that day. Our little town, here in Maine, thousands of miles from New York City, Washington D.C. and Pennsylvania felt that change......... that pain. We lost a friend Stephen Ward. He had recently started a job on the 101th floor of the North Tower. The race today is to honor him and to raise money for the Stephen Ward Scholarship. One of those men on the plane from Portland to Boston, was the mastermind of the hijaking of the planes that day. The world became a smaller place ...... and our lives changed forever. As I write this, I hear the church bell next door ringing. We will never forget.
