Everyone that is old enough remembers where they were on September 11th, 2001. I honestly can’t believe it has been 10 years since the twin towers and the pentagon were attacked. What I like most about that time is feeling so united with fellow Americans no matter their race or political affiliation. I saw the best in humanity on that day and the days following, and although it was tragic, it was comforting to know that Americans will stick together and fight for each others lives in any crisis. I was at work in Dallas, TX on September 11th. Our office stood around a small hand held portable TV with mouths opened and in total shock, trying to get as much information as possible in real time. And when that second plane hit, we were all just speechless and broken.
But today’s a new day, and there’s a beautiful memorial and museum in New York that reminds us of our survival, 9-1-1. Visit the museum and memorial page at 911memorial.org.
