In memory of those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. Our hearts go out to them and their loved ones, whose lives were forever changed that September Day.
Imagine if you lost your child, mother, father, husband, wife, sister or brother that day. Would you forget? Let us always remember the lives that were taken from us that day and the impact that had, and still has to this day, on their families. Parents who will never hear their children's voice or hold them again. Children who will never see their mothers or fathers again. Husbands and wives who suddenly and tragically lost the person with whom they were raising children and planned on spending the rest of their lives. Men and woman who lost their brothers and sisters and other family members with whom they were raised from birth. These people will remember that September Day, and so will I!
Thank you to all of the heroes, the NYFD, the NYPD, and people just like us, who sacrificed their lives helping others that Day and the days that followed. And finally, thank you to our Military for their continued efforts and sacrifice so that we may continue to live safe and free.
We will never forget them... Thank you and God bless you all.
I was at work in Brooklyn on 9/11/01. It was a really weird morning. I saw the second plane hit the WTC and the second building collapse (I missed the first because I was at meetings and only went to see after the first plane and first building fell). Bizarre. I used to get really upset on September 11th but less now. It feels like more and less than a decade has past. I can still recall it vividly in my mind. And for days afterward, there was this strange transformation in New York--sort of closed in and scared, yet more open and friendly. And a very odd burning smell from the wreckage downtown.
We can never forget that day. May there be peace in this world.
Well said Erica. I lived it all in New York and all I could do was feed my firemen and policemen in my neighborhood.
