Never Forget

On this day, 19 years ago, 246 people got ready for their morning flights. 2,606 people woke up to get ready for work, while 343 firefighters began to prepare for their morning shift. 60 police officers arranged their day for the morning patrol. 8 paramedics went through their morning routines, anticipating a day when they might be called upon to save lives.

None of them saw past 10:00am.

In one single moment life may never be the same. As you live and enjoy the breaths you take today and tonight before you go to sleep in preparation for your life tomorrow, kiss the ones you love, snuggle a little tighter, and never take one second of your life for granted.

Never forget.
