Today we want to take a moment to remember the events of this day in 2001.
Mom was sitting in her office when her phone rang. Grandpa had an appointment that morning and hadn't gone in to work yet. As he was watching the morning news, he saw, along with so many others, the places hit in New York and the towers fall. He called mom to let her know what was going on. No one in her office had heard yet....they found a tv and all sat watching the news.
We remember the lives lost in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania. And those that then went to the other side of the world as a result to protect us and lost their lives.
We remember the heroes....from those on the plane in Pennsylvania....to those that ran INTO the buildings as other were running out...to those who came back from war with physical and mental wounds that take so long to heal.
We remember the families and friends of those who lost someone on that day and those that followed.
The new building is up at One World Trade....we hope as a show of faith to those who worked there, those that will work there in the future and those that helped make it happen.
