World Trade Center

The events of 9/11/01 affected the entire world.  It affected the whole country.  It affected Manhattan and the outlying areas where we live.  We knew people who did not survive.  We know people who worked as first responders.  We know people who could not get in touch with their loved ones in the city.  We know people who watched from their office buildings as planes hit the towers.

We wish with all of our hearts that these events had never happened.  If ever there was a time for a do-over, it is that morning.  But we can't erase the events of that day, we can only move forward.  We can not let the terrorists win, not then and not now and not ever.

It has been such a bittersweet honor for my husband to have been involved in this project.  On the one hand, we wish the events of that day never happened and on the other, we are glad to have had a chance to give back.

Over the last few years, Jason has gotten to be friends with Scott Elliott, an independent film producer who has been filming the creation of the World Trade Center Memorial.  Please visit Scott's website to learn more about this project.

Not a day goes by where we don't think of the events of that bright September morning.
Not a night goes by where we do not pray for the victims, the survivors and the terrorists.
We never want to forget.
We never will forget.

God Bless the United States of America
