I Love New York: Remembering September 11th

I never know exactly what to say on this day. Yet I feel I must say something. That’s the way it is for me, for many, when it comes to loss. In times of pain, even pain that was 13 years ago, are words ever the best communication method?

Every year on September 11th I just want to wrap this city in a big hug and whisper I love you, New York. I don’t know where I’d be with out you. You’re amazing, you know that? Your bravery and resilience inspire me every day. I’m so proud of you. Oh, and I gotta say it- you’re so fucking beautiful it hurts sometimes.

This is the incredible metropolis I call home. I’m so lucky to have you in my life, New York. We all are. Never forget.

Remembering September 11th & honoring all those who gave their lives and those who rebuilt NYC from the ruble. 
My heart goes out to all New Yorkers whose lives were forever changed, in one way or another.

  1. I like these photos but also I would add that probably you love the city because you love your life in it. It is the stage of your days, happy moments and achievements. A city is only loved as much as your life is appreciated in it. In this case I am glad that your life is great there!

  2. I’ve just started reading your blog in the last few weeks and have been enjoying it (and am insanely jealous of your cute boy stories), and this is such a perfect set of photos for today — beautiful and serene. Thanks for sharing.

  3. A few weeks ago I was having a reunion with some friends. Even though we are mexicans, we couldn’t help to feel devastated for this incident. It’s true, most people would say it happened miles away, elsewhere, but we felt it close. We were saying that no matter where you lived, everybody remembered what were they doing or where they were on 9/11. I was born here in Mexico, and I lived for a few years in the US and then came back, but I remember that ever since I was 4 years old I’ve felt close to New York somehow, even though I’ve never set a foot there, at least in this life. I remember back then I felt sad and wanted to scream and cry for all the lives that were lost, for how they had hurt my favorite place on Earth. That day will always be a sad day to remember for me, and my heart goes to all New Yorkers on this and every day.

  4. I think this tribute was perfect.

    I’ve been to New York City only once, in my senior year in high school, and I remember visiting the site being one of the most sobering moments of that trip, especially since this happened at a time that I can remember clearly.

    Again, I think this is perfect. The photos are beautiful.
