09.11.2001

It was a day like any other, September 11, 2001, until 8:46 am. These are the images that cause a visceral reaction in me, the tears pour and the empathy comes over me in waves.  That day, I don't want to forget or choose to forget.  I tried, but the images, they bring it back so vividly. We remember, will always remember the devastation, agony, chaos and loss on that day.  We will remember the heroes, many that lost their lives to save others.  We remember.














Times of impact: 8:46 a.m. and 9:02 a.m. Time the burning towers stood: 56 minutes and 102 minutes. Time they took to fall: 12 seconds. 2819 dead from 115 different nations. 343 Fireman/paramedics, 23 NYPD, 37 Port Authority officers. I WILL NEVER FORGET 09-11-01
