    Default My N.Y. 9-11

    I AM A NEW YORKER




    I am a New Yorker
    I do not live in the five boroughs or on the Island or Upstate

    I may live hundreds or thousands of miles away

    Or I may live just over the GW Bridge

    But I am a New Yorker




    I am a New Yorker
    Whatever took me out of New York:

    Business, family or hating the cold

    did not take New York out of me.

    My accent may have faded and my pace may have slowed

    But I am a New Yorker


    I am a New Yorker
    I was raised on Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and Rockefeller Plaza,

    The Yankees or the Mets (Giants or Dodgers)

    Jones Beach, Rye Beach, Rockaway Beach or one of the beaches
    on the sound

    I know that "THE END" means Montauk.

    Because I am a New Yorker


    I am a New Yorker
    When I go on vacation, I never look up

    Skyscrapers are something I take for granted

    The Empire State Building and the Statue of Liberty are part of me

    Taxis and noise and subways and "get outa heah" don't rattle me

    Because I am a New Yorker


    I am a New Yorker
    I was raised on cultural diversity before it was politically correct

    I eat Greek food and Italian food, Jewish and Middle Eastern food and

    Chinese food

    Because they are all American food to me.

    I don't get mad when people speak other languages in my presence

    Because my relatives got to this country via Ellis Island and chose to stay

    They were New Yorkers


    People who have never been to New York have misunderstood me
    My friends and family work in the industries, professions and
    businesses that benefit all Americans

    My firefighters died trying to save New Yorkers and non-New Yorkers

    They died trying to save Americans and non-Americans

    Because they were New Yorkers.


    I am a New Yorker
    I feel the pain of my fellow New Yorkers

    I mourn the loss of my beautiful city

    I feel and dread that New York will never be the same

    But then I remember:

    I am a New Yorker


    And New Yorkers have:
    Tenacity, strength and courage way above the norm

    Compassion and caring for our fellow citizens

    Love and pride in our city, in our state, in our country

    Intelligence, experience and education par excellence

    Ability, dedication and energy above and beyond

    Faith--no matter what religion we practice

    Terrorists hit America in its heart

    But America's heart still beats strong

    Demolish the steel in our buildings, but it doesn't touch the steel
    in our souls

    Hit us in the pocketbook; but we'll parlay what we have left into a
    fortune

    End innocent lives leaving widows and orphans, but we'll take care of
    them

    Because they are New Yorkers


    Wherever we live, whatever we do, whoever we are
    There are New Yorkers in every state and every city of this nation

    We will not abandon our city

    We will not abandon our brothers and sisters

    We will not abandon the beauty, creativity and diversity that New York represents

    Because we are New Yorkers

    And we are proud to be New Yorkers
    Nationalism is an infantile disease. It is the measles of mankind. Albert Einstein

    America's future is bright, not white

    How poetic from a person who just spent the last three weeks and still wishing death upon Americans through hurricanes. If you are New Yorker quit whining. You still suck.

    I love NY! I also love my car! My car won! LOL!

    Just kidding, I love to visit NY and have made many lifelong friends there!

    I also appreciate that we remember what we lost there- including the lives that were lost and their family members that loved them.

    Never forget!
