To the End

Posting again today in remembrance of those who gave their lives on 9/11 in service and protection of their fellows, and in gratitude to the countless who pulled together to help in the aftermath. Firefighters, and police, and medical personnel, and construction workers, and those who took up leadership positions when it was needed. For the military and civilian alike who could have remained safe but charged in to help at their own peril. For John and Jo Vigiano, and Karen Juday, and Michael Trinidad, and Sean Eckert, and Todd Beamer, and all those I cannot name. Remembering the horror, and their courage in facing it.

In offering to my several friends who have recently lost dear ones… Words cannot begin to touch this. But what I have, I give you.
