Today marks a somber day in American history as we commemorate the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. We remember and honor the heroes who passed away, were injured and who risked everything to help on that September day in 2001.

Many of us can remember the way our nation came together after the heinous events of 9/11. According to Newsweek, following the attacks, a record number of Americans donated to various causes to help the nation, victims and family and friends of those taken from us. Nearly 75 percent of the nation made a donation to the more than 300 organizations created to assist in the recovery.

While there are far fewer organizations still in existence today, 9/11 Day is one dedicated to establishing Sept. 11 as a National Day of Service and Remembrance in permanent tribute to those we lost. For the 20th anniversary, the organization is inviting everyone to “Shine A Light,” by taking a moment to pay tribute by posting and sharing one act of kindness, charity or service in honor of the anniversary.

A number of other organizations continue to support survivors. Consider honoring today’s anniversary by supporting the following organizations:

  • Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation: Established in memory of firefighter Stephen Siller, the organization supports the families of injured or deceased firefighters, officers, military members and emergency services workers.
  • Tuesday’s Children: This organization supports the survivors and families of 9/11 victims, and has expanded to include those impacted by terrorism and traumatic loss.
  • Scholarship America: Support the Families of Freedom Scholarship Fund to ensure those who lost family members on 9/11 can afford higher education.
  • FDNY Foundation & New York City Police Foundation: Support the tens of thousands of firefighters and police who rushed in to help on 9/11 by giving to the non-profit arms of the fire and police departments.
  • USA Cares, Inc.: Help improve veterans’ quality of life and prevent veteran suicide by donating and supporting this organization.
  • 9/11 Memorial & Museum: Help maintain the memorial to the 9/11 heroes.

However you choose to commemorate today’s anniversary, together we will always remember and honor the memory of those who gave everything on 9/11, the day our world forever changed.

Come Face-to-Face with Mountain Gorillas on a Trek in Uganda

Not a word was spoken as I settled into a cozy spot on the outdoor terrace just outside the main lodge at Volcanoes Bwindi Lodge in Uganda. The air was so still the ice in my single malt seemed to echo off the forest in the distance as it clanked against the glass. I sat among a handful of fellow adventurers, each sitting silently beneath the night sky for one collective goal. Moments earlier, we learned a troop of mountain gorillas had made their way down the mountain near our lodge, and we left our meals to instead sit in eager anticipation of hearing the guttural grunts of the primates below. The chills on my arms never left me that night, even as I made my way up a stone pathway to my personal banda (guestroom). Thankfully, sleep came quickly for me that night as I drifted into dreams of what my next day would bring.

Amantaka Review

You know what you’re going to get at an Aman hotel, and also you don’t. Expect peerless service, obsessive attention to detail, architectural elegance worthy of a fashion magazine, a holistic approach to wellness and astounding levels of comfort. But each property is also intimately connected to its setting, and that’s where the surprises lie. For instance, finding yourself on your knees on a sidewalk in Luang Prabang handing out sticky rice to Buddhist monks at 5:30 a.m. isn’t something we expected.
