Remembering the Fallen

Eleven years ago today, nearly 3,000 people lost their lives during the tragedy in New York. Since that horrific event, 9/11 has spurred even the least patriotic among us to have a sense of national pride, as we honor those who passed away. Every year, mourning citizens come together to celebrate the lives of their friends and loved ones who died that day, each having their own way of remembering. In Manhattan, twin lights beam into the sky where the towers once stood, to symbolize the strength of our nation, and show that we are still here, still standing.

Where were you when the first tower was struck? How do you remember and honor those who were lost?

    It’s so hard to believe 11 years have passed since this horrific event. I was in high school, second period-home economics class. I’ll never forget the moment I sat with my class and teacher and watched these events replay and replay on TV. We’ll always remember the lives that were lost. Beautiful blog.
