Tears stream from my eyes as I watch the images that played out 14 years ago on this very day. A day so long ago evokes memories that seep from what seems like fresh wounds. Visions of death and horror penetrate my mind, but I’m comforted as I watch heroes all of different backgrounds and ethnicities and some not even human, working together for a common cause to save lives. The worst in humanity also brings out the best in humanity. That fateful day we lost so many lives. The attacks were not just on America but on humanity. And we fought back – united and remembering what we are made of.

We aren’t all New Yorkers. We aren’t all American. We are all people. We will stand – united – against evil.

I remember…
