Before & After
Before September 11, 2001 it was all about “Don’t Forget”
Don’t Forget to brush your teeth. Don’t forget to wash your hands. Don’t forget to do your homework. Don’t forget to set your alarm clock. Don’t forget to say your prayers.
After September 11, 2001 it was “Remember”
Remember to live life to the fullest. Remember to tell people how much you care. Remember to hug, Remember to laugh. Remember to cry. And most of all, Remember to love.
