Kathleen Nicosia (Remembering 9/11)


Kathleen Nicosia
was a flight attendant on American Airlines Flight 11 on September 11, 2001. I didn't know Kathleen but thought I would take the time to sketch her and remember that day. I read that she lived in Winthrop, Massachusetts for 32 years. I lived there for over twenty years myself and I wondered if we ever crossed paths in that small town. God bless her, her family and all the victims of 9/11.

I got teary eyed when I read this. What a great and selfless thing to do with your time. You've inspired me for the day!

As a teacher of high school, I spent 9-11 teaching my students of what happened. They were only 9 or 10 years old in 2001, and I felt as a history teacher, I could not let them forget. I want them to remember, so it will never happen again. Thanks Todd. I wish I had your scetch as part of my class. I think next year, I will put it into my plan.
