Traditionally, a sailor would have HOLD tattooed on one knuckle, and FAST on the other knuckle so that he could keep a better grip on the riggings. In other words, don’t let go.
Today, as our nation pauses to reflect on the events of this day, 10 years ago, I think HOLD FAST is a fitting reminder to all of us.
Hold fast. Don’t let go. Persevere, and triumph. Through anything.
In remembrance of all of the victims of September 11, 2001.
