To my left, the projected lights that appear to be like the Twin Towers. Behind me, the NYPD marching band plays “Amazing Grace” with bagpipes and drums. It’s surreal being in NYC on 9/11 – this is my first 9/11 while living here and all through the day I was reminded that, for a lot of people, this day still hurts. For a majority of people, including myself, a city was attacked 14 years ago. For these people however, their home was attacked. It’s a humbling reminder to be respectful for those who lost someone on this day 14 years ago. (at 9/11 Ground Zero Memorial – NYC)
