In response to the question, Lynn Hopkins wrote on Edgewater-Davidsonville’s Facebook page: “No I just think people want to go back to "normal" but not forget that tragic day. It depresses me to dwell on it but I will never forget it either.”
Denise Snyder shared this: “Unfortunately, the kindness and love we shared with our loved ones, family, friends and even strangers is not as prevelent now as it was then. Most of us have become too complacent until we are reminded of that tragic day on September 11, 2001 and all that we lost.” Read more here.
