Never Forget

9/11 workshop museum art
I share this post every year because it’s important to me that we have a visual reminder of this day, now more than 20 years ago. Can you even believe it? 

It’s crazy to me that there is a whole generation that wasn’t even alive when 9/11 occurred.

As many of you know, New York is near and dear to us. It’s a city we love so very much. I always knew I’d love it, and when my husband took me on my first trip (just a few days before September 11, 2001) I found out I found out I was right. 

This photo always gives me chills. We’re at the top of the Statue of Liberty and you can barely see the towers behind me:

This was nine days before 9/11. Nine days later and the towers were gone.

My husband was a band director at the time, and a few months after the attacks we were supposed to travel to Japan for a band trip.
