Day of Remembrance
9/11 will forever remain as a day of remembrance in honor of the thousands of souls lost in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack. For my family, Sept 11 was already a day of remembrance as it marks the day we buried my Mom at the end of her valiant battle against ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease). She may have 'had" ALS--but ALS never had her. She was joyous and positive until the very end. She may be gone, but will never be forgotten.
