Beneath the Survivor Tree

17 years ago, I spent my birthday at ground zero, staring at a hole in the earth filled with rubble, just crying.

After enduring a depressing year, I needed a reminder of how blessed I was and how precious life truly is.

Today, I returned to that spot with my husband and kids – not needing any cues.

In them, I am reminded everyday how fortunate I am and how priceless time is.

Today, I just stood with my family beneath the survivor tree relishing in its resilience, survival and rebirth.
