we will never forget

After our world changed on September 11, 2001, New Yorkers made a promise.

We promised to never forget.

Susane Colasanti, Stephen Venters, and the Tribute in Light, 2008

This post is my way of sharing the memories with you. I’ve written about my own 9.11 story. How my friend Stephen and I were supposed to be on the 110th floor observation deck of the South Tower on September 11, 2001. How we’ve returned to Ground Zero almost every year since then to celebrate being alive. Our photos and memories have been posted here over the years. Today, I’ve compiled them for anyone who might be interested.
