Task 11: Thank You – 9/11 Tribute

Today marks the anniversary of the 9/11 Attacks. Today also marks Patriots Day in honor of those who not only lost their lives on that September day, but also for the thousands of First Responders who worked on the response and recovery. Some who have since lost their lives due to their exposure to the sights of those attacks. While we can never repay them for their brave heroic efforts, we can show our gratitude for what they did.

As we reflect on that day, I remember stories first hand captured by cell phones. For many, these devices became lifelines to connect with loved ones. With our dependency today on these devices, we thought it was a perfect opportunity to talk about how to make your cell phone your No. 1 safety tool. I have a back up battery pack on my phone… I carry a back up battery, inside the case I can hide emergency money. I have added contact info to my screensaver. I also have several apps on my phone…

DAY 11 Challenge:1-3, or 5 pts    We want you to share some of the ways you can make your phone your No. 1 Safety Tool.. Do you carry back up power? What apps do you have? What other items have you added or downloaded onto your phone that you can share.

Level Up: 5 pts We want you to find ways to not only pay tribute to the memory of those lost on 9/11, but also find a way to thank a local first responder in your area. Think about how you can make that “Thank You” personal. It’s easy to post a comment online or even send a thank you note. For Today’s level up, we want you to find a more lasting and personal way to thank local First Responders for what they do each and every day..
