I was lucky, I didn't know anyone that was directly affected when the towers fell...indirectly and profoundly changed yes, but no one who lost their lives or the lives of a love one. No one that I know suffered the loss of a loved one indirectly either.

On such a day as this I will remember the little things. Remember how quiet it was, how strangers hugged. How blue the sky is, and how the song of a bird seemed so sweet at that moment.
I will kiss the girlfriend and hold her tight. I will call my brother, a volunteer firefighter, and thank him. I will tell my friends and family I love them.
These are the moments we need never to forget.
