Thank you Carrie for posting ... we must remember and never forget 9/11. There were so many people who gave up their lives so others could live. I lost a very good friend in the north tower, she was from Peru ... where I am from. She worked in Cantor and Fitzgerald along w her husband ... I lived in NYC in the 70's for 3 years. I used to accompany my mom who took English classes in the evening at the WTC.
