Thank you for sharing your experience about the aftermath of 9/11 at Ground Zero and for selflessly volunteering your time to help those in need. You are a true patriot with a heart of gold.

With pain in my heart I read and reread what you have written about 9/11 and more. That you showed up, fully, in a timely, kind, informed, and honest way is a gift to everyone you touched and to those of us who get to see a speck of what you saw. Thank you for what you did then. Thank you for helping each of us, to remember, to show up in our lives, and in the lives of people around us. Thank you.
