We remember, like we have for the past 11 years, the events of September 11, 2001. Events that changed the world as we knew it. Each of us, in one way or another, have been profoundly impacted by the events of that day.
Last year, as we approached the tenth anniversary, I had the opportunity to be in conversation with T.J. Mannix, a New Yorker who, like so many did that day, watched his city suffer through these attacks.
Like many New Yorkers, T.J. could not stay home and watch – he went to Ground Zero and put to work the training he had received from the Red Cross during his teenage years.
I’ll let him share the rest of the story with you …
As you listen to my conversation with T.J., it is my hope that you’ll take a few moments to remember those who were lost that day; that you will remember the families who were impacted by the loss of someone they loved; and, that you remember the heroes of that day – the first responders who risked it all to help their fellow Americans.
Let us never forget that on that day and the many that followed, we stood as one nation indivisible.
