the world will know peace." ~ Jimi Hendrix

Sombre, massively impactful, impossible to forget, 9/11 means many things to each of us. For most, especially those who are old enough to remember exactly where they were when they first found out the attacks, this day will live like an uninvited specter in our minds for the rest of time.

In honour of all those affected by the tragic events of September 11, 2001, please use today's short post, with it's eloquent quote that hope for a world where peace is true and events like this will never again occur, as a moment of silent remembrance for a day that shocked, shook, and forever changed history.

May we all live to know one day know a world with peace.
