Living // Never Forget 9/11


Normally today would be a beauty post, but given the date, I'm breaking from the schedule to take a moment and honor everyone who risked or lost their lives during the Sept. 11 , 2001 attacks. It's hard to believe it's been 14 years...

I was only in seventh grade at the time of the attacks and really didn't quite comprehend what was going on. At the time, New York City and Washington, D.C. seemed so far away from me. But then another plane came down in Pennsylvania, just a two hour drive away from where I grew up.

During Summer 2010 I lived in Washington, D.C. for my internship and visited the Pentagon. Then, a couple years ago, I got the chance to visit New York City for the first time ever with my best friend. We made a point of visiting the memorial during that trip. It was extremely moving to stand at the footprint of the Twin Towers and think about everything that happened that day.

There's a lot that goes on in the world each day, and it's easy to get caught up in the daily grind. But it's important to take a moment to reflect and never forget...

Let's keep in touch...
