A Day of Remembrance

Late Spring 2002: Where the Towers Used to Stand

Late Spring 2002: Where the Towers Used to Stand

Twelve years ago today America was attacked and the Twin Towers fell.

The last two months at work, I found myself occasionally working with Flight Attendants who were so young, they were still in Elementary School when this catastrophic event occurred.

Consequently, they had been shielded from the full horror, and for them it was only a really bad thing that happened a long time ago.

It wasn’t visceral. 

It wasn’t life-altering.

It wasn’t the most horrifying thing they’d ever experienced.

Life does go on, but today, please try to remember.

Remember what it felt like to be alive on September 10th, 2001.

Remember how that feeling shattered the next morning.

Remember.
