In Remembrance of 9/11
What I Remember
It was my senior year of high school; I believe I was in Spanish class. Our teacher turned on the TV in the room and we all watched in disbelief. It was terrifying especially because there were so many unknowns at the time. Because nothing like this had ever happened in my lifetime, I was convinced that war was going to take over the entire country and I would be dead. Perhaps a bit dramatic, I know, but not 100% untrue.

I never thought, at the time, that I’d ever be living in NYC. Now I live on an island with millions of people, many of whom experienced loss and devastation years ago. I had never been to NYC before we visited last fall. My husband and I came to Manhattan for my job interview and took a few day to explore the city.
One of the places we felt it was important to see was the 9/11 Memorial site.
Hundreds of people visit on any given day.
