Eleven

It was 11 years ago when I was sitting in math class and they asked for anyone who had parents working in the city to go to the library.

It was 11 years ago when our country came together in the midst of a terrorist attack.

It was 11 years ago when 2,983 people lost their lives, including 23 NYPD Officers, 343 FDNY Firefighters, and 1 bomb-sniffing dog.

I cry every time I see this.

May we all take a moment today to think about those who lost their lives and the families that they left behind. Let's also think about the troops fighting overseas for our freedom so we can live the lives we have.
