11 years later and it still elicits raw memories and tears. The people we lost are forever in our hearts. The impact the attacks made have touched each and every one of us – American or not.
Rather than focusing on the attacks themselves, I choose to remember that good people still exist. While buildings were burning and planes were being hijacked, hundreds of people were risking their lives to save strangers. Not because it was their job, not because it would make them famous, but because people are inherently good. Today we honor them.
