My grandmother gave me this necklace when I was about seven years old. She has had it since she was in high school, which in my opinion makes it all the more special. When I wear it I feel like I’m carrying an abundance of history around my neck. In the sense that, it’s been through a lot over the years; good and bad moments, happy and sad moments. My grandmother is a very special lady who has been through a lot in her; early loss of her husband and battled with a life threating sickness shortly after her loss. Of course many people go through loss and other such hardships.
Because of that, today I really wanted this photo to be a tribute to any lost loved ones as well as anyone who is suffering. All history included, because no one is ever forgotten no matter how many years go by. Also, I wanted to just take a moment to remember all the victims of 9-11 who died ten years ago. You’ll never be forgotten.
