Today is the ninth anniversary of the tragic September 11 (9/11) catastrophe that occurred in the U.S. in 2001. In America, church bells will ring, flowers will be laid and everyone will take a moment to remember and honour those who died in the tragic attack. This is why September 11 has become a ‘special’ date – one that should be remembered.
Here at Shine on this special day, everything is running smoothly and routinely almost as though no one remembers what happened nine years ago. Or maybe it is a sensitive subject and instead of speaking about it, everyone is keeping their respect and mourning inside. With such lovely weather outside, it is the perfect day to spend with friends and family, and turn it into a different kind of ‘special’ day – one where there is no tragedy or sadness.
