Speaker at UW-Platteville says the terror attacks 10 years ago taught him to take nothing for granted.
BY CRAIG D. REBER TH STAFF WRITER

PLATTEVILLE, Wis. -- Two days after he was injured in the terrorist attack on the Pentagon, Dan Holdridge returned to his 4-H camp in Connecticut. He spent the entire day there.

"I wanted to go back to the place where I had my bearings as a child, where I felt safe, where I knew who I was, where I was going and had a purpose," he said. "I went back to find that because the rest of the world was shaking. My family, my friends, all my colleagues, everybody was freaking out because I almost lost my life, and I should have died but I didn't. ... It (4-H) is the greatest organization in the world. It is a gift to whoever belongs to it, whether it be a volunteer, a youth or an extension educator, or anyone who has the ability to be touched by it."
