It was a regular day at work for Angie Houtz. Sept 11, 2001 carried no special meaning. She was 27 years old, working as a civilian intelligence analyst in the Pentagon when the plane hit, killing her and 183 others. She was also my cousin; and now September 11th is a day I will always think of her. The 9/11 Memorial in lower Manhattan opened to the public at 6 p.m. Thursday, the 13th anniversary of the attacks. More.
