So, today is September 11th. It’s hard to believe that it’s actually been 12 years since our country was stricken with such a tragic event, and this PR Agency is taking a pause to remember the thousands of victims that were unfairly taken from us.
Even though it was over a decade ago, I remember it like it was yesterday. I’m sure you do too. I even remember exactly what I was doing when I found out the news, and the confusion I felt wondering why such a thing would happen to us. I remember the exact moment of seeing that first plane, and then that second plane, and even though I couldn’t fully comprehend what was going on at the time, I knew that the world would change forever because of it.
But, I did learn a lesson from the aftermath of 9/11. The days and months after the attacks brought out a side of people that I hadn’t really seen before. All Americans, regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, age, and color came together without pride or prejudice, and stood next to one another in solidarity. I saw people from different backgrounds and economic statuses come together to help each other out in any way possible, and I don’t think I’ll ever lose sight of that.
We should all pause for a bit today to pay tribute to the thousands of lives that were lost, and to remember the day our world stood still. I know this PR Agency is.
