I remember 10 years ago...the day we were forever changed.
I was forever changed.
My first born daughter was a baby at the time and we were living in our first place, an apartment. It was a beautiful morning here in the Midwest and as I always do and still do, I got up to watch the Today Show. I was numb as I saw one of the Twin Towers hit and was shook to my core as I saw the second Tower hit live.
I remember shaking and crying. You see I am not just a fellow American that felt the pain of this crisis but I was born in New York. Brooklyn to be exact, and grew up in Jersey. Visited New York almost every weekend to see my grandmother in Brooklyn (Bedford-Stuyvesant).
I began to think what kind of world my little girl would face.
WE are a Strong Nation.
We move forward

while not forgetting those who have suffered..

Hug those you love a little tighter and have a great weekend everybody.
