For those who died in stairwells, offices, and jumping from windows.
For everyone who just happened to get on those planes.
For those who fought back.
For everyone who watched the towers crumble and crash right above them.
For those who ran away in time and for those who didn’t.
For everyone who put the lives of others before their own.
For those who could only watch helplessly.
For the wives, husbands, partners, sons, daughters, mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, and friends.
For those whose lives changed forever in what seemed like an instant.
For everyone who has to suffer the consequences of the actions of others.
For those whose names sound different and whose skin is darker who are targeted by the fear and anger of ignorance.
For everyone who died.
For those who were left behind.
We remember for those who will never forget.
