We will never forget where we were 10 years ago Sunday. It was the day time stopped in America. September 11, 2001 was the day that the worst in people brought out the best in people.
Black or white, Christian, Jew, Muslim, Hindu, Atheist or Agnostic, we all stood together united. It was the day I huddled in front of the television with complete strangers, hugged, prayed and cried with with my brothers and sisters.
When the New York Giants and the Washington Redskins kickoff this Sunday it will represent so much more than standings in the NFC East. This game represents two of the cities attacked and how we had to come together to help one another.
During this game take the time to think about what this day means. Take a moment to think about the mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, aunts and uncles that lost their lives that day. Think about the brave men and women that made the ultimate sacrifice to protect us. Think about the firefighters that ran into the towers selflessly to pull out their fellow Americans.
Whether you root for Big Blue or the Burgundy and Gold, stand together with them and remember what is really important and what this game is truly about.
