I remain so grateful he is alive.
It's a short text.
I send love.
I let him know I am thinking of him.
For me, today is a day of reflection.
To quietly thank the thousands of selfless people who did their job, who volunteered, who did what they could to make things better on an utterly horrifying day.
Despite the horror, there were the zillions of small acts of bravery, kindness, compassion, silence and abiding love.
On that terrible day, a nation became a neighborhood.
All Americans became New Yorkers.
~ George Pataki
Many of whom were created by the deeds they did.
