9/11 made a huge impact on me! As a young mom of two babies, I was downtown in my apartment, blocks away from the Twin Towers. I took my daughter outside to walk the dogs and found us both confronted by people running from downtown covered in white. I told my daughter who was 2 at the time, that it was snow.
That night we had dinner in a neighborhood restaurant, as I had no kitchen at the time. We paid for the dinners of all the Firefighters who dined next to us. Some didn’t come back the next night, or the night after.
Thank you, New York City for the amazing work our Police and Firefighters performed then and continue to perform. My heart goes out to all the families who have suffered a loss due to 9/11.
I will not be tweeting on Twitter or posting on Facebook in rememberance of 9/11.
We all need to take a moment to reflect and be grateful for all we have everyday!
