always remember – 9/11

Each year exactly 2,997 flags (one for each victim of 9/11) are placed in the shape of the Twin Towers at a fire station close to my home.  It is amazing each year to see to see the lines of cars waiting to spend time in this space.  It is a reminder of how our country was so tragically shaken eleven years ago.

The above photo was taken by Patrick Schneider – a Charlotte photographer.

I appreciate the creative ways that our country continues to remember our fellow Americans that were lost that day.

What do I think about when I see these images?

  • I remember how I felt that day, where I was and how it took me months to feel safe when I saw an airplane.
  • I think about all of the people who lost a family member or loved one so quickly. My heart goes out to them.
  • I am proud of how New York City and our country have come back from this and continue to move forward in remembrance.
  • I am grateful for the people who are in my life and know that I can never take them for granted.

What emotions do these images bring forward for you?

Where were you on that day?
