NYC and 9/11

Today marks the 10 year anniversary of 9/11. It was a sad time for everyone. I grew up in New York City and moved here about 3 weeks before it happened. I was only a sophomore in high school. I was frantic when I couldn't get a hold of anyone because of the phone lines having issues! Once I did, what I heard from my friends were devastating. I had friends who witnessed the attacks first hand and friends who lost loved ones from this terrible act. 10 years later, it makes me sad when I Google "Twin Towers", instead of showing the beautiful skyline, it shows images of the attack.

For this, I created a basic layout. Now pictures, just words and embellishments. I just wanted to write down a few things I love about the Big Apple to remind me the great memories of the city, rather than the bad.

I will be entering this to Scrapbookers Anonymous' No Photo Challenge. For this LO, I used DCWV's Downtown loft stack.

Let's all take the time to remember the great things that came out of a heartbreaking day.
