I always find it hard to term dates like this as an “anniversary”. It tends to be the way most refer to the date, but it seems more appropriate to instead define it as the 10th “remembrance”. It marks a time to remember the Americans whose lives were cut short by a ruthless event—either as victims of the attack or as heroes who gave their lives trying to save others.
Our world changed significantly that day. With each year that passes, we hope and pray that those affected personally continue to heal and find new hope. We wish for a time when fear and hate no more take such a hideous form.
On September 12th this year, the 9/11 Memorial will officially open to the public in New York City. Twin reflecting pools are the prominent attribute of the installation, featuring two of the largest man-made waterfalls in North America. Bronze panels featuring the names of the fallen edge each of the pools.
Learn more about the 9/11 Memorial by visiting the official website. We hope you’ll take a moment to read about the memorial, and take some quiet time this weekend to remember. Your hot tub can be one of those quiet places to free your mind and reflect.
Here’s to a brighter, safer, more peaceful world.
