For many of you, it is time to say, “Welcome back to school!”
To get us in the right frame of mind, my featured book for this month is a history book about the greatest and most diversified city in the world, New York City. More languages are spoken there than anywhere else in the world. New York is home to many great sports teams and many of the world’s greatest cultural institutions and architectural icons. Did you know that the ice cream cone, coal-fired pizza, teddy bears, scrabble, and hip hop were all invented in New York?
New York City has seen its share of highs and lows. No event was more tragic than what happened on September 11, 2001. My book, Ellie Loves New York City, is dedicated to the 2,977 victims of the 9/11 attacks in New York City, including the 414 brave first responders who gave their lives to help save others. Today, the 9/11 Memorial honors all who were lost that day and helps us remember the basic goodness in humanity.
I believe that we should pause our lives every day to say thank you to our first responders for their incredible courage and bravery
New Yorkers and the rest of the country come together after 9/11. One of the worst days in American history brought out the very best in all of us. There is no “i” in USA, only “us.” We are always better when we all come together as one. We should reflect on that today, especially given all the turmoil in New York City and across the country.
