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?
