Remember September 11, 2001

Lily's notes

We remember this day many more times each year than just on the anniversary of the actual date of the attack and we always remember the people who were lost who we personally knew.

The media may have dubbed the Trade Center site  “Ground Zero” but we should not call part of our vibrant and recovered city by this clever, false title.

The 16 acres are correctly called the World Trade Center site.

The site is being rebuilt much, much too slowly but there is some progress and the anniversary of he attack has become a day of community service. 

This is a perfect way to actualize what we learned on that day and the days that followed: how we are joined in community and responsible for each other. Remember.
