Let’s get started on our 9/11 rememberance.
One of our readers is actively involved in the New York Says Thank You project – from their website:
From an act of extraordinary evil on September 11, 2001, Americans responded with so many acts of extraordinary kindness. People from all across the United States poured into New York City to volunteer, to pay their respects, and to be with us in our darkest moment.
New Yorkers will never forget that.
The mission of The New York Says Thank You Foundation is to send volunteers from New York City each year on the 9/11 Anniversary to help rebuild communities around the country affected by disasters. It is our way of commemorating the extraordinary love and generosity extended to New Yorkers by Americans from all across the United States in the days, weeks, and months following September 11th.
A movie had been made about them, and it is on AOL tonight at 8pm EST.
Here is the trailer:
We lived in NJ for 6 years and I was on duty with my rescue crew on 9/11 in Belle Mead, NJ when the attacks happened. We were called up to help; we were a volunteer unit and were not obligated to go, but we did. From that experience I gained even more love and respect for New Yorkers and New Jersyans…they are a tough as nails group, but full of love and goodness.
