#NeverForget 9 • 11 • 2001 15th years ago today we lost many lives & the Towers due to a act of terrorism. Our city & country was forced to stand tall as those Towers once did & always remember the fallen soldiers of this day. The date 9/11 will always be symbolic to me for more reasons than one… My condolences go to the families affected by this tragic event. And my respect & appreciation goes to the many who helped saved lives & repair our city in its aftermath.
I remember being a kid and 9/11 being a moment in my life. I was in Atlanta and I remember being in class and everyone having a Cold feeling in there heart like someone in your family just got shot. The air taste different. I was so young I couldn't understand what was happening. The fact that the U S was under attack. As I got older each year it became more and more of a reality to me of the importance of unity. That was a time when whether you were black or white or Spanish or Asian you knew that a lost is a lost. Moments like these bring people together. So that shows me that it is possible for us to come together. Just gotta be more consistent with the love. You can't be selective with respect. From with Love . God Bless the towers.
