I know I don’t look happy in the photo, but there is a reason for that. This is after visiting the 9/11 memorial in New York
An unspeakable historical event that I have been fascinated with growing up. I have watched every documentary and have read every book about September 11 and to visit the site in person was a VERY raw grounding experience
Through my tears, I touched the names of the poor souls that were lost, I glanced at the white roses that were laid for some of the victims’ birthdays
I listened to the tour guide’s story of where he was when it happened. Tears streaming down my face and overcome with emotion. .
Then, I stumbled across the ‘survivor tree’ (swipe left for its story). People travel far and wide to touch this tree and I can see why, the energy that it radiates is incredible, you instantly feel a wave of positivity and relief. The tree also survived hurricane Sandy. .
I hope we all have a little survivor tree within ourselves 💕
