A Day Of Remembrance- 911


We should never forget the tragedies of our history, lest we allow them to reoccur. Today I honor and remember those who died and the loved ones they left behind. They have been honored in song, literature, and pop culture and I will continue to honor them all of my days.

  1. I couldn't agree with you more. It's important to reflect on our past as a Nation, learn and contemplate what has shaped us. And with memories such as this one, never forget.

  2. So few have commented today. Old news ... unless someone you love died in one of those towers or in the Pentagon. We live in a world filled with ticking bombs walking around on two legs.

    Life is fragile, precious, and filled with thoughtless humans that would snatch it from our grasp.

    Thanks for remembering, Roland

  7. I was flying yesterday, and couldn't help thinking of what happened eleven years ago—where I was, what I was doing, how important it was to me to gather my family into the safety of our home, and the awful pain of horrifying loss we all felt. The pilot of the airplane I was on yesterday made an announcement of remembrance before we took off; it was a sober, solemn moment for all of us. We will never forget.

    1. Oh wow Linda, what a day to be flying! Sobering indeed. That's what I remember the most too, gathering those close to me, the sudden kindness and camaraderie of strangers, a nation changed.
