"People Fleeing Lower Manhattan Faster than the Titanic"

 "People fleeing lower Manhattan faster than the Titanic"

Headlines I remember during the fall of 2001. I will always remember that sunny September day 19 years ago, all the innocent lives lost and all the heroes who sacrificed their lives to save others.

I remember getting a call the night before from my friend Richard Hack informing me that his bestseller Hughes: The Private Diaries, Memos and Letters was being released on September 11, and he was being interviewed with Matt Lauer at 8:36 AM tomorrow on the Today show. I should watch the interview and meet later for lunch. While he was being interviewed live on the Today show the first plane crashed into the World Trade Center.  I went up to my roof and saw the horrendous horror with my own eyes. 

Today the headlines and articles are the same Mass Exodus from NY. Flight to the Suburbs, NYC is dying ... Bla Bla Bla!

I remember the spirit of the fellowship and unity that brought New York together in the wake of the September 11 attacks. The resilience of all New Yorkers who were determined to come back from this unthinkable event stronger than ever. And we did! And we will again. In the greatest city in the world. In the greatest city in the world!

New World Trade Center | Lower Manhattan

In re- sponse to the attacks, New York City has been a national leader in implementing more stringent building safety requirements. These include wider emergency exit stairs to make evacuations quicker, the installation of photoluminescent strips to make building evacuations safer and the full sprinklerization of office buildings to better safeguard property and protect lives. We will do it again in response to a pandemic.

We Remember - We Never Forget - We Rebuild-  We're Stronger - We're Better - We Live in an Age of Terror - We Help Each Other - We Look Out For Our Neighbors -  For or Fellow New Yorkers and Fellow Americans. - Prayers and Thoughts to Those Who Lost Their Lives and Loved Ones.

God Bless New York and God Bless America!
