For those that lost their lives on 9/11

I was inspired by a woman who I saw on TV.  She donned a bracelet for someone who was fighting in the Viet Nam war.  They had written letters back and forth, and she promised that she would never take it off until she met him.  Well, 40 years later she had the honor of putting the bracelet on his military jacket as they laid him to rest.  I had a bracelet back then too, but I wasn’t as vigilant as she was, and I am ashamed of myself for it. 

9/11 was such a tragedy, and I want to show support for those who lost their lives as well as support for the families.  I don’t know if I will get any information about this person who is on my bracelet to let them know that I am wearing it for their family member.
