Thirteen Years

Yesterday, I attended this event honoring the Fallen Heroes of 9/11.

Today, I have the honor of being invited to the remembrance event at the Flight 93 Memorial.

Over the two years, I have had the privilege of working with a number of family members of those lost on 9/11.  They were all so generous with their stories about that day.  Some have made peace with what happened, others remain incredibly angry.  And over all of that, there will forever be sadness.

The one thing that I have learned is that there really are no words to express the horror and loss of that day.  But I have also learned that the biggest fear these surviving family members have isn’t that it will happen again, but that their family members will be forgotten.  So we need to make a point today to do some research.  Read a bio of someone who died that day.  Speak their name out loud.  And never forget.
