It's known as one of the darkest days in America's history, but September 11, 2001 was a day that brought not only our country together, but us here at home.
Every life lost that day was precious, but the loss of Paul Ambrose seemed to make the tragedy feel real at home.
The Huntington native was killed when his plane crashed into the Pentagon.
Paul was a graduate of Marshall University’s Med School. He was dedicated to improving the quality of rural health -- and even after his death, his family was determined to keep his dream alive.
"Here was somebody who was helping, loving, and trying to do good for individuals. Others were trying to destroy," said Ken Ambrose, Paul's father.
Here's a true sign of how life has moved on since the Terrorist Attacks: Americus Rood was born on September 11, 2001. Today she's 8 years old.
She might not remember what happened the day he was born, but her family will never forget the joy he brought on such a tragic day.
