Tribute in Light
Time is the best healer. The rubble and Twin Towers remains at Ground Zero disappeared. Partially destroyed buildings were taken down and their footprints became new construction zones for new buildings. The 9/11 Memorial opened last year. A new tower is still under construction, growing higher and higher until it will reach its target height of 1776 feet.
While we'll never forget the events of 9/11/2001, most of us have moved on with our lives. For some of us, the 9/11 memories remain still fresh... Over the years we may have forgotten the bond that held us together, united during that time of trial. Yet, each year, there is one day reminding us that we are still capable of kindness, understanding, compassion, sacrifice and patriotism, as we were in the aftermath of 9/11 attacks. Each year, there is one day that reminds us of those we've lost, of those who have given their lives trying to save others. That day is September 11th.
