9/11 We Will Never Forget!!
"Hey Jules, it's Brian, I'm on a plane and it's hijacked and it doesn't look good. I just wanted to let you know that I love you and I hope to see you again. If I don't, please have fun in life and live your life the best you can. Know that I love you and no matter what, I'll see you again." –Brian Sweeney, a passenger on Flight 175 that crashed into the World Trade Center, to his wife, Julie

Superhero day at school to honor the heroes we will always remember and never forget. David and I had been married 9 months, and I was headed to work to see a client at a local school. When I got there, parents started showing up to get their children and take them home. Work was cancelled and David was sent home from his job too. We just sat in shock and horror watching the events of that day and every time I saw people share the photos of their loved ones, I cried. It was a terrible and horrifying day; one that we will never forget and always honor those we lost. #neverforget#911heros#patriotsday
An early, blatant example of how Black lives didn’t matter in this tragedy was kicked off by, no surprise, then Mayor Rudy Giuliani. On the highly anticipated post-9/11 episode of “Saturday Night Live,” the show opened with Giuliani appearing on the famous stage surrounded by more than two dozen first responders (mostly New York City firefighters) in uniform. Not one was Black. A Black, Brown, yellow, red or female face was nowhere to be found.
#RudyGiuliani spoke about how these were New York’s real heroes. It was a powerful message for the world to see, yet there were no Black faces for the world to see either.
So on this date in 2001 we commence the 12 Black firefighters died during the 9/11 attack at the World Trade Center in New York City.
They were among the 343 firefighters and the almost 3,000 citizens who were victims of the attack in New York City.
The 12 Black firefighters were Vernon Cherry, #AndréFletcher, #GeraldBaptist, #KeithGlascoe, #KarlJoseph, #TarelColeman, #WilliamHenry, #RonnieHenderson, #VernonRichard, #LeonSmith, Jr., #ShawnPowell, and #KeithroyMaynard.

Theses are the K-9 hero’s from 9/11, thank you, we will never forget... 🇺🇸💕🐶. 18 years ago while We were living in Poway and @sssavannahdavisss was 1 years old, we were sitting in the living room watching the wiggles counting down the hours until Gary @hotcaprice1992 came home from his 7 month deployment; URGENT the news broke to the worse tragedy America could ever imagine. At that moment all I could do was hold my sweet Nana🐝 and cry. Got a call from Gary letting us know they were not coming home and were on standby to New York. That day will forever be in my mind, heart and soul. Many of us will never forget and we Americans became one that day. Blessings and prayers to all the families on that fateful day. America we stand!!!❤️🇺🇸 #k9heros#911heros#neverforget2001#neverforget911#neverforget#dogheros

9/11 :: Today we made time to discuss the importance of this day and I couldn't get through it without crying. Gets me every year.
I flew to NYC shortly after the day that shook our nation 18 years ago and walked the somber streets, heartbroken for the lives lost and the brokenness left behind.
