A moment of pause -Thoughts and prayers go out to all impacted by this day, Sept. 11 – 13 years ago in 2001; to the families, loved ones, friends left behind – to the first responders, citizens who tried to help and suffer the effects and to the innocent victims of this horrific day in American history.

I’ll never forget it – watching television making breakfast that morning for my son and getting him ready for school. 13 years on – my son is now a college student in New York.
My daughter was in her sophomore year in NYC for college in 2001 – her dorm two blocks or so from the towers..it was hours before I knew she was safe, there were restaurants, cafes inside. All phone lines were jammed or down – panic then prayer. It was an extremely emotional and difficult experience for her to be there and see it all, to see families posting pictures of missing loved ones.. she came back to LA, petrified to fly (an understatement) for a while and took time off before returning to college. To day this day as someone who travels and flies because of my job in entertainment is a fear I’ve had to learn to deal with and face. Healing prayers to all. Peace on earth. Love in place of hatred.

September 11. 12 Years.

Remembering and keeping in thought and healing prayer all of the innocent victims 12 years ago who lost their lives, those who tried to prevent the tragedy, and those who were heroic in their efforts to save and rescue. Remembering and keeping in thought and prayer as well as all of the families and friends who were left behind and impacted forever by these heinous acts. It remains another haunting and unthinkable event in this lifetime.

I pray always for love, unity and peace in this world.
