Commemorating 9/11: 16 Years Later

September 11th, 2017

Today officially marks the 16th anniversary of 9/11. The September 11 attacks (also referred to as 9/11) were a series of four attacks committed by Muslim extremists against the United States on September 11, 2001 in the areas of New York City and Washington, D.C. It was one of the first attacks in the United States in recent history. Now, we remember those victims affected by the September 11th attacks. We remember the victims and their loved ones, along with the responders who died that day. Today is a time of remembrance and reflection. Take a moments of silence for those who died in the attacks before reading on.

Things have definitely changed in our country because of the events that took place in 2001. Now is a good time to pray and reflect on the future. NYC has been such a haven for my family and I. After the events that took place on that day, we were heart broken. Where were you when you found out about the attacks? Tell me in the comments. While you reflect, take a look at this photo series by photographer Gordon Donovan to see some of the most iconic photos taken on that fateful day.

To all those affected by 9/11, my heart is with you.
