Times can get tough. Life may seem stressful at times. People may get on your nerves. You may be late to work or you can't find your keys. There are things that happen everyday that distract us from our path and it is easy to in the course of everyday life to lose sight of the things that are truly important to you.
It has been 7 years since I was in NYC documenting the attacks of 9-11 but the images still haunt me. It is easy to forget that we were attacked on our own soil and that thousands of our fellow Americans lost their lives.
Please don't forget them. Don't forget what happened. And the next time you see a police officer, fireman, ambulance driver or other such civil servant, shake their hand and tell them that you appreciate what they do.
Please, never forget.
