Sept. 11, 2001 is now seen as an epic day: one that swept the world and rewrote history books. But many people have more personal stories -- especially when it comes to loved ones they lost. Sarah Clark, a 65-year-old teacher from Columbia, Md., was engaged to John Milton Wesley, an author and communications specialist. They had been together for seven years, and friends for twenty, when Clark died in the plane crash at the Pentagon. Rebecca Blatt talks with Wesley about how he honors Clark's memory, and how he's finding love anew.
