I still remember 9/11/01 really well. I was a teenager, I was taken out of class & brought to my mom’s job/my grammar school, and my friend Amy & I refreshed CNN.com constantly. I knew the world changed, but didn’t have the perspective to realize how.

That’s why what I remember most about 9/11 is the respect we had for each other in the days following. I miss that.

Today there’s so much animosity. Differing opinions = a lack of respect.

The lesson we should remember from 9/11/01 is that we can & should unite. We should all respect each other, because we are all the same.
