Today, we remember all those affected by the events of September 11th, the people we lost, the brave responders – Adafruit “grew up” in the shadow of rebuilding lower Manhattan, it’s in our DNA, we were and will always be part the area. It was a struggle for the entire area for a long time, now it’s starting to thrive. Today we visited One World Trade Center (Freedom Tower) to pay our respects and visit our old location – photos above.

Our big take away from being around here for the last 10+ years is tragedy is going to happen, you cannot avoid it – how we react and what we do is what matters, sometimes recovering is slow, sometimes we’ll make mistakes, sometimes it’s painful and seemingly hopeless, but if we treat each other well and be there for each other, we can, together, get through anything, and accomplish anything. It’s beautiful day here in NYC, we’re going to reflect on what we can do to make it a better place together.

Last up, here’s an old photo our Ladyada in front of old-Adafruit while the Freedom Tower was being built. Some things have changed in the last 5+ plus years and some things have not.
