Today is a difficult day for many people around the world who remember the tragedy that occurred in New York on this date.

I had the opportunity just before Christmas to visit Ground Zero and it was very difficult comprehending the scale of what had occurred on that day.

Everyone remembers where they were on this day and I hope we never see such a situation occur ever again.

I personally lost a good friend who was working in one of the towers that day. My thoughts and prayers are with his family today.
