We Remember . . .

2,976.

That is the number of people who were murdered on September 11, 2001. Not 3,000. Not about 3,000.

2,976.

Let's get the number straight because every single person counts.

Carmie, where were you that day? What was it like to be in/near New York City?

Toni said...

2976. I will never forget that day. Ever.

I can't believe it has been 10 years already. Still just makes my heart sink.

Laura said...

This still evokes tears form me. My nehew was one of the ones lost for almost 48 hours before we knew where he was (his company was in the WT Center.) A friend (a volunteer fireman on LI) was killed-it wasn't even his jurisdiction-he was a LI fireman visiting Brooklyn that day and helped...so many others just made it out too close to even talk about.
Never forget...they were just living their lives...

To the point and well said.
I work at a newspaper (nowhere near NYC) and the coverage we have been doing leading up to the anniversary has been insane. I wonder, are we missing the point? I think we may be.

I like how you stated that the victims were murdered and not "killed" there is a difference between those two words.

The other day on the news, I heard them give the death count from 9/11and then say it included the terrorists. I resent that they are included in the death toll. They were not innocent victims but the purpetrators.
