We quantify our lives through periods of time often marking the intervals between the present day and a memorable event or day in the past.
1 week…6 months…1 year…5 years…
It is the 10-year mark, a full decade, that marks a special period. It is a noteworthy interval of time that curves around change and growth. This significant mark has now been imprinted onto the tragedy of September 11th, 2001.
It has been 10 years, and we still remember.
We remember the heroes.
We remember the fallen.
We remember and honor the sacrifices of those that have gone to fight for this country and those who continue to fight to protect us.
When thinking about 9/11, I realized I wasn’t alone in my memories. I work in a company full of people who remember that day and want to show honor and respect to the heroes, the fallen, and the loved ones left behind.
I sat down with some members of our team, including a Marine, a Purple Heart recipient, and a mother of two, who shared their stories capturing a timeline of memories, sorrow, hope, and strength. The reflections my colleagues shared with me were truly moving, and I wanted to share them with you as we remember 9/11, 10 years later.
We will never forget.
