18 years later, we still remember. #NeverForget ❤️
I have been a little hesitant to post these pics and vid as I’m not sure the visuals or any comments could begin to do it justice or come close to evoking the amount of respect it deserves, but being in NYC for the anniversary of 9/11 was truly an incredible experience. Hadley and I paid our respects to the memorial site where we found flowers and pictures and poems and other keepsakes beside the names of lost loved ones, we witnessed FDNY officials marking names with badges and roses to honor the fallen and later in the city we stood and watched as a memorial motorcycle parade proudly rode through Manhattan to pay their respect. Although she is far to young to understand, I was consumed with mixed emotions ranging from reverence to anger to sadness to astonishment and even pride to see how NYC and America has rebuilt, respectfully honored, and eternally memorialized that day and all the lives affected. I look forward to sharing these pictures, emotions, and patriotism with my children when they are old enough to comprehend the significance, and appreciate how America continues to prove to be the greatest country on earth through compassion, respect, strength, and honor. #9/11 #respect #memorial #merica #usa #twintowers #nyc #patriotism #love #world #neverforget #america #pride
In questo luogo, surrealmente, si spegne New York. Tutto viene accantonato da tutti (eccetto qualche idiota che fa selfie e foto sorridenti, purtroppo esistono ovunque) per fermarsi e, in rigoroso silenzio, riflettere su quel che é stato. Se venite da queste parti, investite del tempo su questo e sul museo dedicato alla tragedia, é difficile da spiegare a parole.
For 13 years I have had the honor of working with the most phenomenal New Yorkers. Men and women of service, and colleagues who are some of the most honorable and brave I’ve ever known. .
For 13 years I have listened to them recount their moments from 9/11, and during this time it has solidified in me an endless respect for what they have survived and worked through. .
There is nothing more humanizing than the camaraderie of this city and it’s people. Some of my best friends lived and worked through that day, and they continue to show up, and they continue to fight with each passing year. .
I have taken care of the survivors of 9/11 as patients in many forms: first responders, NYPD, PAPD, civilians, family members, and FDNY. It is always an honor. Their stories are what resilience is all about. .
What happened on 9/11 isn’t a moment frozen in time, it is a moment that circulates year after year and every day in the lives of so many. As an NYC healthcare provider, I am amazed with the strength of this city and those who have been affected by the after effects of that day. .
I have been honored to take care of the New Yorkers, my first responder family, my firefighter and PD family, and living here for so long has truly changed my entire perspective on life. .
There are some things that are just unimaginable. Overwhelming would be an understatement. But what connects us all is human emotion. .
We never know what will happen we leave each day. Tell your loved ones you love them. Be kind to eachother. Spread good deeds. .
I salute those who gave their lives, I salute my fellow New Yorkers, and I salute everyone who is dedicated to the service of others. .
Never forget. No day shall erase you from the memory of time. .
11 años después me encuentro con #JoeToscano oficial de #policia de New York. Frente al Árbol de los sobrevivientes en las afueras del museo. Hoy #Joe vino por primera vez de regreso a la zona cero. Después de 18 años. El me rescato de los escombros es uno de mis héroes en la vida real. Gracias #Diosesbueno #teamsofialachapelle💙💜💙 🌎🙏.
I spent the day yesterday walking thru the 9/11 Memorial for the first time and I brought Ella with me . I was overwhelmed by the energy of sadness , so much so that even Ella must have felt it too as she started asking why the stone was black and why is there such a big ( Bowl) just taking all the water under ?
So I thought for a second and just out of nowhere it came to me and I started telling her a story about 9/11 “ once upon a time there was a beautiful city where everyone lived in full blast energy and one day something bad happened , two of the most beautiful building called Twin Towers fell down to the ground and a lot of people got booboos( this is the word for us when someone gets hurt ) , and all the people of the city came together to build something special to remember all of the special people that got booboos , and now we can all come here and say a prayer for them “
And my 3 and half year old turned to me and said “ so let’s say a prayer Mami”
I did , we both prayed . Time flies and only memories live , I can only imagine how hard today must be for so many but we must remember to never forget and teach the new generation the importance of appreciating this one life we all have to live and remember the ones we lost ♥️ #nineelleven
I remember 9/11 so vividly. I came into the living room and saw my dad watching the TV and buildings were on fire and the first thing that popped into my 21 year old brain was “Oh what movie is this dad” he looked at me pale as a ghost and said “This is Real” I got the craziest feeling in my body after that. I remember driving to work in the San Fernando Valley and barely seeing anyone on the road. At work not a single person came in. RIP to everyone we lost that day & thanks to all the first responders who went in to help regardless of the health threats. 🙏🙏🙏
I remember brushing my teeth in the bathroom, and seeing the reflection of my moms tv in the mirror. The towers were on fire and I remember being very confused at first. It didn’t seem real. Was it a movie? Why was my mom crying? Why would anyone want to hurt that many people at once? I was only 11 back then and war and terrorism were not topics I knew much about. Not until after that day, in school and on the news for what seemed like the rest of my education career. Something changed that day, for sure. The world got a little more real. Continued prayers for those we lost that day. #NeverForget #911
We will never forget that day or those taken due to the hands of evil. We will also not forget all the families around the country and globe who’ve dealt with the aftermath. We need to understand evil exists and we will triumph over it as one...as one. #kindness #remember911 #neverforget911
It was important for me to go to the Tribute in light last night. Especially on September the 11th. When I was Injured I used to come here a lot to get perspective especially when I wasn’t feeling good. To feel grateful and to remember those that were not so fortunate on that terrible day. May you continue to Rest In Peace and your loved ones continue to heal. We saw some family members, loved ones last night . We hugged them, I can’t even imagine their pain even 18 years on. Because this one gets me everytime. I’m sure everyday is a struggle but yesterday I’m sure is the worst day of all. Sending everyone love and peace. Good bless America 🇺🇸❤️🙏🏾 #Neverforget #Godblessamerica #september11 #heroes #911memorial ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
