I have a deep and personal connection to NYC. I lived in the area for a year working as a nanny. I moved just three months before September 11th. Everytime I look at pictures of NYC now it just is a very poingnant and visual reminder of the lives lost that day.
Today I am honoring those people. I am remembering the tragedy, the fear, the uncertainty. I am participating in The Day of Service today.
I know none of us will ever forget that day.
