Remembering 9/11 Ten Years Later – Your Stories   11 comments

In honour of all those who died on 9/11 we are going silent for the day to remember all the lives that were lost.  We will not be tweeting or updating the site.

It’s been ten years since September 11th 2001. Ten years, 3,652 days. Somehow it seems as though it happened only yesterday… If you close your eyes, I’m sure you can see the images that were clearly imprinted on our collective minds 10 years ago today.

This post is dedicated to all the people who lost their lives on September 11th, to all the heroes who sacrificed their lives to save others, to all the family members and loved one who lost someone dear and still grieve today and to those who survived. This post is dedicated to the NYPD, the FDNY, the Port Authority, the Paramedics and to the regular people who risked their lives to save others and still wonder why they survived and others didn’t. This post is also dedicated to all the men and women, of all countries, who have fought and still fight in Iraq and Afghanistan today and to those who didn’t make it home… You truly are heroes. 

It’s been ten years. Ten years ago we promised we would never forget… and we haven’t… we never will. 

This post is also dedicated to Battalion Chief Orio Palmer  who lost his life saving others on 9/11. It is our contribution to the 9/11 Tribute Movement. Please also take a moment to remember Robert E. Pattison, who died in the North Tower on 9/11. His family members have contacted us and you can find his story here

Here are our collective stories and pictures of 9-11. 

Read them after the jump!
