9/11 and the Pentagon

Often when speaking or hearing about 9/11, only the Twin Towers are mentioned. However, some ways away, innocent Americans were killed as they went about their daily duties at the Pentagon. One of them was Melissa Rose Barnes, the daughter of a dear friend, who I had known since she was a young girl. Melissa was a blessing in her mother's life and in the lives of those who knew her. Devoted to her family, dedicated to her service in the U.S. Navy, she was a sweet and dear girl. I have pictures of her through the years. She would call me once in a while and share the events of her life. Several times, she sent pictures of her home, her pets, her in her uniform performing her duties. In the video here, you can see her picture at 54 seconds. Melissa Rose Barnes, rest in peace. We have not forgotten you.
