Remembering 9/11

Six years ago today the world changed. I will never forget the day as I was watching it all go down on CNN. I couldn't help but be glued to my television because if I left it something might happen and I wouldn't know about it. The world changed that day. Everywhere. I live in a flight path where there are planes that fly by everyday, but days after the tragedy I didn't hear a thing. It was horrible hearing the silence and knowing why.

In New York, where most of the victims died, the city plans to mark the event with four moments of silence – two for when each plane hit one of the World Trade Center Towers and two for the moments when each building fell. Families will leave flowers for their lost loved ones at ground zero. Unlike previous years, the names of the more than 2,700 victims will be read by firefighters and first responders (rather than family members) in Zuccotti Park, a small public park instead of at the World Trade Center site.

Also new this year is the death toll, which has increased by one. Earlier this year, the city ruled that the death of Felicia Dunn-Jones of lung disease was caused by exposure to toxic trade center dust, and her name will be added to the list of victims.

So lets all sit awhile and remember all that were lost. They will never be forgotten.
