Never Forgotten. United We Stand.

Never forgotten. United We Stand. Three years ago, I moved to New York with nothing but hope and a lot of determination. I didn’t know how long I was staying, how I would survive the concrete jungle, or how I would even like living in such a big city…all I knew is that “if I made it here, I can make it anywhere.” I was in New York for the 9/11 10th year Anniversary and you could FEEL the heavy hearts, the grieving, the tears in the air but simultaneously you could also feel the resiliency, the strength and the courage of those who persevered through this tragic event. Visiting Ground Zero with my Father, a former Navy Veteran, when he came to visit was overwhelming. So many brave men and women fight for our country and as Americans we need to be more thankful, not just on these historical days but every day.  

My time in New York taught me so much about myself and that no matter what happens in life that makes us fall, we get up and stand tall with solid tenacity and pride. Prayers to the heroes, the survivors and the families that loss their loved ones, especially prayers to our country and other countries, that we one day find peace among each other.
