Last year I registered and ran for this event in honor of Stephen Siller. The actions of this man were truely heroic. This run was more than him. It was more than what happened that September 11th 2001. I personally did not know what to expect. I just figured it was an event to show support for families affected from that day. I was amazed to see the turnout. Thousands upon thousands participated. As I ran out of the same tunnel Stephen Siller did that day I saw some family members of first responders with signs, pictures and posters of their fallen heroes. I also saw those who survived but were never the same since that day. I was moved and decided to raise my hand and salute them. I held that salute as I ran by the entire line surrounded on both sides. The line went on and on and I could not help but think of how many people were affected that day and after. I heard these same people cheer on, salute back and even thank me. They were the ones to be thanked not me. Everyone has their own memories from that horrific day. Sine worse than others yet there are no comparisons. We all handle situations in our own ways and no ones is more important than the next. September 11,2001 is truely a day we will never forget. This run, Stephen Siller and all the families involved is a day I will never forget.
