Remembering 9/11 — 11 Years Later

By September 9, 2012

Follow me on:

World Trade Center Tribute in LightNew York, along with the rest of the world, will pause on Tuesday, September 11th, 2012 to honor the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

It will be a day of sadness, memories, and coming together as a community. Although 11 years have passed, we cannot and will not ever forget September 11, 2001.

This year, the Tribute in Light will return to New York City skies and you can take part in the September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance and perform a good deed to honor the legacies of those lost on 9/11. There are also concerts and memorial services taking place throughout New York City to mark the day.

Thinking of everyone in NY today especially families of the lost, my son was born 11 years ago today, so I feel a connection with you all, even though I am in the UK. God bless you all xx

While remembering the tragic events of 9/11/01 and those already gone, how about remembering those who are still in danger in NYC?


There is a daily list of animals who are in danger of being put to sleep at NY AC&C, each following morning. It is sad to see the numbers that do not make it. So many are surrendered by owners for reasons that just seem so weak when compared to their pets intake photo showing how very sad and scared the pet is and knowing that most going in, do not come out alive. They get sick there and then they are put on the kill list. Sometimes, they are on the list as soon as they get there.

These are your animals NY. These animals depend on you and there are people rushing about daily trying to help what few they can before it’s too late. Yet, even with people trying to help them, most slip through the cracks. The animals are being killed, the people trying to rescue are heartbroken and exhausted, and it is a never-ending process. It will never stop unless people spay/neuter their pets, stop breeding their pets, stop abandoning their pets, have better animal welfare laws, and start taking responsibility rather than continuing to look away. Please face these animals, do not look away. They need your help. Please consider fostering or adopting, or making donations to the rescues that are trying to help these animals. Also, please push for better laws for these animals. Push for NY AC&C to be a no-kill facility.
