Blue Skies And Broken Hearts by Meg Keene I was at home, just blocks away that day, and seven years later I remember as if it were yesterday. Thank you to the fireman who rushed past us, running in as we tried to get out. Thank you to the policeman who held our hands and calmed us in the midst of all the smoke and confusion, who told us it was going to be fine even when they knew it was not. Thank you to the New Yorkers who showed more kindness and humanity then I have ever had the honor to witness. My thoughts and prayers are with those who’s hearts are heavy today. Take a minute to think of all that there is to be grateful for, right here and right now. It is so very much. I’ll be back here with more weddings tomorrow.
