I remember September 11th, watching the news in horror as the Twin Towers fell.
I remember my last visit to New York City in 2005. It was very emotional. I was walking around one of the footprints and came upon the Cross. I am not religious or superstitious, but at that moment a thunderstorm broke out with lighting and pouring rain. I was very sad.
Fast forward to my next and recent trip to NYC. I am glad that I visited the One World Observatory and the Oculus first. I was in awe of their design and magnificence. I was proud that as a country we came together, rebuilt, and looked to the future. It was a beautiful day.
You will be remembered always.
