      Leah,
      Thank you so much for the kind words. This day always brings with it a mixed bag of emotions. I thought it important to not only give voice to the tragedy of the day, but also the vibrant life and authenticity that NYC produces so effortlessly. In Remembrance & Celebration of a city so close to our heart.
