TODAY

If it weren’t for Sebastian, I’d probably spend the day on the couch weeping.  My story is a personal one but suffice to say September 11, 2001 was the most heartbreaking day of my life.

Each year I remember my story, our story, but reclaim the day with new memories and marvel at New York City’s resilience and all the beauty it has to offer.

    What a cutie Jill! And you have me intrigued with your story. I think so many of us will remember that day for the rest of our lives. I was at Boston Logan Airport getting ready to board a flight that morning but at the last minute we didn’t take off. I can’t believe it has already been 10 years.

    Thinking of you and all NYCer’s (as well as Pentagon and PA) today and always.
    I can remember exactly where I was, the sadness, anger, pain, chaos…..my husband (then boyfriend) and his brother both worked in NYC- his brother at the WTC…he was running late that day, THANK GOD…although that didn’t give him much peace in the years to come.
    Truly a tragedy that we can never forget but hopefully empowers each of us to be so very thankful for our lives and our freedoms. Hugging my hubs and lil man a little tighter tonight for sure.

    Beautiful, beautiful words…. and really it’s the best thing we can do as New Yorkers and so close to the heart of it all.

    I’m so glad you have Sebastian by your side for days when it’s just that much harder to get out of bed. 9/11 will always be a hard day to get through but I agree with your words: NYC is resilient and stronger than ever… it’s amazing that from so much tragedy, a city is able to rebuild, commemorate and honor.

    XOXO
