At 8:46 ET, on September 11th, 2001, our generation was changed. • • There are pivotal moments in history, where you can remember exactly where you were the moment they happened. Our parents remember when JFK was shot, our grandparents may remember Pearl Harbor and where they were when they heard the news. For us and our generation, that day is September 11, 2001. I, along with many of you, couldn’t peel my eyes from the TV set, as I watched in disbelief with the heaviest of hearts. • • May we Never Forget, not only how that day changed the history books, but may we Never Forget the heroism displayed by the thousands of first responders and citizens who came to the rescue. May we Never Forget the 343 brave men and women who, against unsurmountable odds, fought to save the lives of many, and losing their own in the process. May we Never Forget the men and women who, unknowingly, went to work that day for the last time. And may we Never Forget the men and women who we are still losing today due to working tirelessly in the toxicity of ground zero in the days after the attack. Like salt in the wound, the death toll still rises today. • • May we Never Forget. #343
