On September 11, 2001, the United States of America changed forever. Let us never forget the 2,977 that lost their lives that day or the families they left behind. Let us never forget the sacrifice made by those first responders, the NYPD, NYFD, Paramedics and regular citizens, who rose to the occasion and saved as many as they did.
I grew up in the shadow of the Twin Towers. On a clear day you I could see them from the hill in my hometown in New Jersey. I had friends that worked in the Towers. Luckily no one that I knew died. Others where not as fortunate as I. Please take a moment of silence in your own heart for those that didn’t make it out and remember how fortunate we all are.
