September 11, 2001. Ten Years Later I Haven’t Forgotten and Never Will.

Never Forget

Never Forget

September 11, 2001, is a day I have remembered every single day since and will never forget. I remember the tragedy and fear but also remember the rejuvenation of American pride and spirit that radiated from everyone and everywhere in the days that followed.

Much has happened in my life over the past 10 years with some influenced by those events. Although I was with people on 9/11, it’s a day I felt extremely alone. (I was representing the Sarasota Convention & Visitors Bureau on a sales mission in New England. Ironically, President Bush was in Sarasota that day.)

Flight 93 National Memorial
Memorials have been established at the World Trade Center site in New York and the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. Now is the time to assist the National Park Foundation to complete the Flight 93 National Memorial in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. It is the only national park dedicated to the events of 9/11. Ten years ago aboard Flight 93, forty passengers and crew fought the terrorists and prevented them hitting their suspected target in Washington, D.C. This memorial will establish a place of healing, learning and remembrance. Visit the Flight 93 National Memorial to learn more.

I’ve previously written about my 9/11 experiences and days that followed so I won’t rewrite it but if you’d like, you can follow the links to the three-part story.

Never, ever forget.
