As someone who lived in Manhattan during September 11th I will never forget how beautiful the sky was that day. It was crystal clear and the most beautiful shade of blue I have ever seen. Every once and awhile I may see a sky that is similar and it always reminds me that humans are inherently good and want to help others. That was proven to me over and over again as New Yorkers rallied around each other willing to risk their own lives to help people they didn't even know and how horrific it is that there are people that live in other countries whose reality is a never ending September 11th.
We need to remember the ugliness, that pain and the fear and make sure we never forget.
