Anniversary of 9/11

Today is the anniversary of the 9/11 tragedy.

It's a sad day for everyone but one that I hope will inspire us all to reach for peace in the world.

As I walked our dogs this morning in the park, the streets were awash with New York's Finest and Bravest.... NYC's Police and Fire departments gathered today in different locations to commemorate the lives of those that were lost.

One by one and in small groups men and women in uniform passed by me and as I headed home I could hear the lone voice of one man singing the National Anthem in the distance.

It was quite a morning.

Here in Italy there were some events too, but I believe that NYC has lived this day in a completely different way. I remember my 9/11. My father was still alive, and we were together. We didn't know what to say but our silence was quite loud enough.
