I remember this day, 16 years ago, like it just happened. I remember the fear, the uncertainty, the shock over what had happened. I also remember how people came together. I remember the salutes and tributes given to firefighters, paramedics and police officers. I remember unity in the face of tragedy.
It was a terrible day, but it didn’t stop good from happening.
And so, today I send prayers to the families and loved ones of the victims of 9/11…and remain grateful for, and in awe of, the bravery and sacrifice of so many in the aftermath.
