After the big 10 year anniversary of 9/11 last year, I think many NY’ers would decide to see this year’s as a turning point. While never being able to forget what happened that day and the loved ones they lost, it was time to look towards the future, move ahead. It speaks to the strength of the community here and you can feel it everywhere.
Around the city people were honoring the day in different ways. I always take a few minutes to remember the coworker our company lost that day. He got out of the tower safely after the plane hit but went back inside to help others and never made it out. The President asked for a moment of silence at 8:46am, boats sailed in unison down the Hudson, crowds gathered at ground zero and the TODAY show decided instead of honoring the moment of silence they would interview Kris Jenner about her breasts, so that was nice.
But this day is also “special” for another reason. It is my sister’s birthday. Happy Birthday beautiful sister Cynthia. You’re a kind, sweet, loving, sister, wife and mother and you are loved by many.
