Remembering 9/11 Ten Years Later

In remembrance of those lost on 9/11, we will never forget…victims, loved ones, 1st responders, the heroic stories.

The photo above is one I took during a year-end high school trip in 1993 to visit the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.  I took the photo of the Twin Towers from aboard the Staten Island Ferry.  This trip was my first visit to NYC, and I couldn’t wait for that day to bring my first glimpse of the Statue of Liberty.

On 9/11, I was working at a company near King of Prussia, Pa., just going through the usual routine of the job and listening to my radio as I worked.  Then, reports suddenly started coming through about the tragedy.  As I drove home between 4:30 and 5:30 p.m., everyone had their headlights on as a way to show collective support for the victims.  One of my co-workers led a prayer circle later during that week for those lost, their loved ones, 1st responders and our country.

These are some of my memories from that day and the days that followed.
