In Loving Memory...

Today is a day filled with a bunch of different emotions. My heart and prayers go out to every single person affected by the tragedy on September 11, 2001. I guess in other words, my heart goes out to everyone. We were all affected in some way, shape or form.

At least 2,985 people died in the September 11th attacks, including:

**343 NYFD firefighters and paramedics
**23 NYPD police officers
**37 Port Authority police officers
**1 NYFD firefighter killed by a man jumping off the top floors of the twin towers

Being married to a firefighter and knowing other police officers, this day always hits home so deeply. To hear of any firefighter or police officer experience a LODD (line of duty death), it always reminds me of the sacrifice that not only our firefighters and police officers make, but our military personnel make as well.

My heart grieves with the families and friends of every single person that was lost in this horrific tragedy. Not only did family and friends lose a loved one, but we all did. We all felt the pain, we all shed tears, we all prayed and held vigils. We were all affected, each and every one of us.

We Will Never Forget...

In Loving Memory to everyone who lost their life...

I still can't believe that it's been 7 years already! It's quite a bittersweet day for me cause it's also mine and Paul's "original" anniversary.
This day will never be forgotten nor will all the heroes!!
