I can’t believe this was so long ago.  2001. Everyone seems to remember where they were when the planes struck… I was in a meeting with Carswell’s president discussing partnering opportunities with Bellzinc.ca.  Once we got back to our offices, we were told to go home and work from home for the next few days.  Bell had declared a code orange and was making all employees go home.   I spent the afternoon watching the horror on TV.  I cried.   For days and weeks people were in a stupor.  Many people lost their lives that day, those who survived  and were close to the Twin Towers have been plagued with health issues.  So many emergency personnel died saving lives.  this is a wod to honour everyone who died that day.

Here is 9/11 by the numbers to remind us of how many lives were lost and how many families were changed forever:

Total number killed in attacks in New York: 2,753

Pentagon deaths – 125
Number of firefighters and paramedics killed: 343
Number of NYPD officers: 23
Number of Port Authority police officers: 37

Passengers and crew members aboard United Airlines Flight 93 died when the plane crashed into a field:40

Estimated number of children who lost a parent: 3,051
