Today marks the 13th anniversary of the attacks on September 11, 2001.
Eventhough 13 years have passed, I still remember that I was off work because I was sick, having sinusitis.
I remember that I could not believe what was shown in the news on tv. I had been to the Twin Towers years before and I have visited the site last year in May.
“It has now been 13 years. Thirteen years since the peace of an American morning was broken. Thirteen years since nearly 3,000 beautiful lives were taken from us … Thirteen years after small and hateful minds conspired to break us, America stands tall and America stands proud.”
